TRAIN 4 AUTISM wrote -
As you may know, my oldest son Darren was diagnosed with Autism when he was 2. Since that time, I have always looked to all means to try and help him along in his journey through life. I have been fortunate to come in contact with many wonderful people and therapists who helped him grow to where he is today, a cheerful and amazing 7th grader, who makes me proud everyday.
On March 19th, I am taking part in the LA Marathon as part of a 2 man relay team for Train 4 Autism. Each year I participate in various events with Train 4 Autism to help promote Autism awaressness and provide support for parents who have autistic children. This year's relay event, will be a first for the LA Marathon and is a great opportunity for me to Give Back for a cause that is a part of my life. As part of my participation in this event, I will be working to raise funds in support of Train 4 Autism (T4A) (http://train4autism.org/)(501C3) to help them in their continued support of those with autism in their lives. My goal is to raise $500+ for this event. As such, I need your support in helping me meet my pledge goal for this event and worthy cause.
Thank you in advance for any support you can provide.
