OK, Everybody...PLEASE Support Me!

Since its inception, Autism Speaks has committed an unprecedented $128 million in new research funding through 2014 to uncover the cause(s), prevention, treatments and cure for autism, making it the nation's top private funder of autism research. Since my job involves working with students with Autism, I have joined and will run with "Team Autism Speaks" in this year's New York City Marathon on November 1st. This will be my third and last marathon, so I want it to be my most memorable by raising the required $2600.00 in support of Autism Speaks. Please donate to this worthwhile cause as generously as possible. Thank-you in advance for your donation. Rick UPDATE: I'm 52, and no longer wish to spend 6 months of my life training for marathons. Therefore, assuming I run the NY City Marathon, I'm done running marathons. It will be a great way to end it, don't you think?! However, God willing, I will continue to run half marathons and shorter races.

PLEASE follow the link on the right to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks. Thank-you in advance for your support...Rick
