Coming up this September is the 1/2 Disneyland Marathon! I’ve decided to make this run a few months ago through the charity cause, Autism Speaks. So far this summer, my training has taken me to more than 120 miles running!
I chose this charity because of my interest in autism and in helping children. After touring a facility at the San Diego Rady’s Children Hospital, Alexa’s Playc, my heart melted when I learned that about 1 in every 60 children are diagnosed with autism every year! Also, that there is a spectrum to which individuals can fall into regarding autism. I toured Alexa’s Playc and there is a waiting list for families, and the parents having to find support on their own. It indicates how much there is a need for programs to help our neighbors. Our communities need our help. Let’s bring as much awareness as we can!
I’m asking for your support by way of donation and to sharing to as many folks as you can. My goal is to reach $2000 by this Friday, August 28th. We can do it! Thank you so much for your support and love!
