Autism affects 1 in 68 kids, including one very special cousin of mine. Later this year, I’m running the NYC Marathon with Team Autism Speaks to help raise money for research and to develop resources for families like ours affected by the disorder.
This is a subject that is very near and dear to my heart, as I have a little cousin (well, actually a not-so-little-any-more cousin who is over 6-foot-tall and now towers over me, as you can see in the above pic!) with Asperger’s syndrome, a type of autism. I am running this race for him!
Will you help me make a difference?
If you will support me at 50¢ per mile… that’s only $13.10.
If you will sponsor me at $1 per mile… that’s just $26.20.
(Of course, you can also give in any other denomination, from $1 to $1,000!)
For the cost of a couple of drinks or a meal out, you can help me raise money for this very important cause.
