EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2011
Autism affects 1 in every 110 children born in the U.S. Despite this staggering statistic, it receives only a fraction of funding for research and treatment when compared to far less prevalent disorders. Train 4 Autism is a parent founded and volunteer managed organization with a goal to unite a very diverse and widespread autism community. We allow our athletes to select the autism programs and organizations that are closest to their hearts to benefit from their hard work and fundraising. Support our efforts to raise funding and awareness for a worthy and desperately in need cause. All Train 4 Autism athletes taking part in The 2011 San Francisco Marathon / Half will receive a technical running shirt. As an added bonus any athlete raising $300 for Train 4 Autism will receive a race entry reimbursement. Raise $500 for Train 4 Autism and receive a T4A commemorative fused glass pendant or lapel pin. Join our Team, Be Empowered, & Inspire others.
All donations will support an organization for young adults with special needs in my home town of Milwaukee, WI. I have worked one on one with children on the spectrum and have been teaching children with special needs for five years. The young man in my pictures has changed my life and has allowed me to develop compassion for organizations that can provide resources and money towards a great cause. I am running for Mikey, and am honored to be a part of Team Train 4 Autism :)
