BENEFITING: TRAIN 4 AUTISM
ORGANIZER: TRAIN 4 AUTISM
EVENT: 2015 LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
Please help me reach the finish line. This will be my third year running the LA Marathon. I am asking for your donations to support a local autism charity.
Train 4 Autism's mission is to support and empower parents and children touched by the disorder by involvement in endurance sport. All the proceeds go to Autism charities.
This year, Train 4 Autism, is going to use the 2015 Asics LA Marathon raise funds to buy Creative Steps a van to help get the kids where they need to go.
Creative Steps is a post high school program serving our growing autistic population that is “aging out” of school. Just like Train 4 Autism, Creative Steps was co-founded by a parent, Lisa Szilagyi, who couldn’t find the right organization to meet her child’s needs. Similar programs often were outside her community, not always accepting, or able to accommodate children like Lisa’s daughter. Rather than send her daughter way beyond her community or make sacrifices in her daughter’s care, Lisa chose to launch a local program in locally Santa Monica.
Please help me reach my goal of raising $900. No donation is too small.
Train 4 Autism is a registered 501c3 non-profit that was started by parents, not athletes
