2012 marks the 3rd year for Team Up! with Autism Speaks as a participant in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. This year, 44 runners will be hitting the pavement in our beautiful Team Up! Singlets and we hope that you can join us with a donation to get a taste of what its like to run with us.
Your donation, or your efforts to fundraise for Autism Speaks will be sure to put a little more spring in your step as you run 26.2 miles. Keep in mind, in the time it takes an average person to run a full marathon 24 new people will be diagnosed with autism.
Join us in raising the much needed funds to drive down those prevalence rates and make your 2012 race more meaningful! E-mail ChicagoMarathon@Autismspeaks.org for information about joining our 2013 team.
Autism Speaks is the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, and treatments for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we've been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead.
Team Up! with Autism Speaks is your opportunity to run a marathon, climb a mountain or push yourself to the limit to help raise funds to help those struggling with autism.
