Greetings To All!!!
It is 2012 and this is my annual request for your support to a worthwhile endeavor that is personal, the Annual Run for Autism.
This is the 37th Marine Corps Marathon scheduled for October 28th, 2012. Just like last year, I will be running the SHORTER DISTANCE (10K) event with the intent of raising awareness of Autism and funds for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR).
Each year has been better than the previous year, I am praying this trend continues. This year my goal is to raise $5,500 with all the proceeds going to OAR. OAR is a national non-profit organization that funds research and resources for individuals diagnosed with autism and their families. Sponsoring online is the most efficient way for me to raise funds for OAR, so I would appreciate it if you would visit my personal web page for this event.
Your donations are tax-deductible and you will get an automated confirmation note for tax purposes. Any and all amounts are appreciated.
For those uncomfortable with donating on-line, you can mail your donation check made out to "Organization for Autism Research" to me at the address below (be sure to insert in the memo section "Greg Smith" as your sponsored RUNNER):
Greg Smith, 7725 Porters Hill Lane, Lorton, VA 22079
