THANK YOU ALL. We rasied a total of $3832 this year. We could not have done it without each and every one of you. A lot of you even braved the horrible weather and walked. We can't thank you enough.
Well you know it is that time again. The time has gone by so fast! The kids are getting bigger and Brandon has made some great improvements this year due in part to the determination and love of his sisters. He can ride a bike; he taught himself to swim and he has rediscovered his love for games of chase and tickling.
He still has so far to go though and we still hope to hear his adorable voice once again. It is so hard to believe that it has been five years since a word has graced those lips.
As you know, we are not alone. The numbers have once again risen and now estimates are 1 out of every 110 children are on the Autism Spectrum. It's scary and extremely disheartening to think of all the children coping with this condition. This year again we are participating in the Imagine Walk to raise funds for the Autism Project of Rhode Island. The organization continues to provide services to parents and children affected with ASD.
Economically things are very tough for most people. However every small donation makes a difference. We would appreciate anything you can do to help our team raise funds this year. If you would like to help raise funds at work, school, etc. to help our team please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
