Two of my grandchildren have been diagnosed with Autism and we have seen the effects first hand. For those of you that haven’t had a close connection with Autism you are fortunate, but you are also in the minority. From the statistics above, you can see that Autism is affecting more and more people every day and the search for a cure is more pressing.
My daughter, Stephanie, and I decided that we were not going to let that trend continue. This year she and I decided to do our part in the search for a cure to end this horrible epidemic. On Sunday May, 6th we are going to participate in the Flying Pig Race. This is a run/walk race that the City of Cincinnati hosts every year. I will be walking the half marathon (13.1 miles) and Stephanie will be running the half marathon. We hope that you will support us in our mission by participating in the walk/run or by donating to this cause. Our goal is to raise awareness and money to further the funding for Autism research. All of the donations we receive will be given to the Autism Society of Greater Cincinnati and will be used specifically for research.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We hope you join us for the walk/run. For all of those participating with us we will be supplying T-shirts and bracelets for the race. If you can’t join us on race day please make a donation to the Greater Cincinnati Autism Society. More details about the race and Autism can be found in the web-sites listed below.
Thank you for your support.
Janet and Stephanie
