Folks many of you know I use my website to help our community
any way I can use it.
Beginning Monday my personal friend Brandy Hood will be walking
for autism on behalf of her son Blake Hood.
I’m going to include some links so YOU can donate to this worthy
cause that benefits children diagnosed with Autism.
This information comes directly from their social media profile:
At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle
with autism spectrum disorders.
We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes,
prevention, treatments, and possible cure for autism; to raising public
awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society;
and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder.
We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.
Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice
to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take
action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that,
working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.
Autism Speaks. It’s time to listen.
Autism Speaks’ Walk Now for Autism, the nation’s largest grassroots autism walk program,
is our signature fundraising and awareness event, taking place in communities across
the United States, as well as in Canada and the United Kingdom. Powered by volunteers
and families with loved ones on the autism spectrum, this successful grassroots fundraising
effort not only generates vital funds for autism research but also raises awareness about
the increasing prevalence of autism and the need for increased research funding to combat
this complex disorder.
Now the walk will take place at Centennial Park in Nashville on September 6th.
You can register that morning at 8AM and the walk itself is one mile long.
You can donate through This Link up to the day of the walk.
Miss Brandy will be walking on behalf of her son Blake, who enjoys
Cowboy Woody and Mutant Ninja Turtles.
He was recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and
this walk will benefit funding for research on how to cope
with this disorder for the medical teams.
