Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page.
On April 16, 2012, I will be running my 3rd Boston Marathon and I am fundraising for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism (Dougie's Team). The last Boston Marathon that I ran was in 2001 so I am hoping that my 44 year old legs hold up over the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston. I am very much looking forward to seeing the faces of my two kids when I go by them on the course. I have been taking them to the Boston Marathon for the last couple of years and they love to cheer on the runners. I am going to need their support for sure!
When researching potential charities to support and run for, I was very impressed by the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. The primary goal of the Foundation is to promote awareness and support families affected by autism spectrum disorders. The Foundation is committed to funding organizations that provide direct services, family support grants, education, advocacy and recreational opportunities with the purpose of improving the quality of life for individuals with autism and their families.
