Ironman & 50 State Marathoner Raising Autism Awareness/Funds

What shoul I do next to help those with autism?  Tweet me @SimpsonGreg

I completed a full Ironman triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) on August 29, 2010 in Louisville Kentucky to raise awareness and funds for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). Even completing a full Ironman triathlon is a small challenge compared to what those with autism and their families face on a daily basis. Thank you for your support.

I ran a marathon (26.2 miles) in each of the 50 states in 41 months to raise autism awareness and funds for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR).  I chose OAR because my nephew has autism.  While running 50 marathons may seem difficult to many, it's nothing compared to the challenges that those with autism face and overcome on a daily basis.
