BENEFITING: TRAIN 4 AUTISM

ORGANIZER: TRAIN 4 AUTISM

EVENT: 2016 LA Marathon

Brian Thompson

THE STORY:

This Valentines Day I am running the 2016 Los Angeles Marathon to raise funds for Reid's Gift - Autism Society Ventura County's 2015 Autism Service Provider of the Year. Our family is honored that Reid's Gift is named for our youngest son Reid who unexpectedly passed in his sleep of a major seizure related to his Autism at age 11 in August 2007. We admire and appreicate the great work Reid's Gift continues in our community and I hope through my crazy efforts you can support them too.

Train 4 Autism (T4A) holds a special place in our families heart as well. Shortly after Reid passed I met Train 4 Autism Founder Ben Fesagaiga and joined the all-volunteer Board in 2008 where our incredible athletes and their supporters have raised more than $700,000 for national and local autism non-profits. Also through T4A each Wednesday evening my wife Kristin and I lead a local Family Fun Run for those on the spectrum and their families where we have been blessed to celebrate the running accomplishments of many young adults and their families. In fact we hope to have 2 of our runners team up for the LA Marathon relay!

I haven't run a full marathon (26.2 miles) since 2008 but I want to do something "special" to help an organization which means so much to our family and the community it serves. Reid's Gift was founded by Reid's former teacher Dr. Molly K. Rearick and she has designed award winning group and customized programs which support interdependence, fulfillment and community engagement for individuals with developmental disabilities. I encourage you to read about Reid's Gift including their mission, approach and finances by visiting www.ReidsGift.org.  Kristin is so passionate about this program she volunteers her time at Reid's Gift 2-3 days a week.

I am asking my family and friends for their support by donating to Reid's Gift as based on their success, leadership is seeking expanded space to operate in order to serve more in the community. Please help Reid's Gift continue to grow and succeed - there is no amount to too small and all donations are completely tax deductible.

From the bottom of our heatrts on this Valentine's Day, thank from our family and Reid's Gift.

Brian
