I am participating in Walk Now for Autism to help find a cure for autism in honor of my nephew, Cade.
Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 150 children born today. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Every 20 minutes another child is diagnosed with autism. Not only must we find ways to improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism, but we also must find a cure, and soon.
Walk Now for Autism is our chance to make a difference in the fight against autism by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness. Please join me in my fight as I raise $500.00 to help fund essential research. I will be walking on Saturday, June 7th (the day before our wedding!) with my family and friends and would like you to support those affected by autism.
(Note: if you're in town for our wedding and would like to walk as well, please register online and join our team)!
You can donate to Walk Now for Autism online through my webpage at http://www.walknowforautism.org. Donations can also be mailed to Autism Speaks using the donation form located on my page or send me a check made out to Autism Speaks. My team name is "Blastoff for Cade"; please note this on your check and the donation form.
Please join me in my fight against autism. Please pass this info on to help my team do this for Cade and all those affected with autism.
Thank you so much in advance for your support! :)
