I first ran the Flutie 5K for Autism in 2014 shortly after my son, James, was diagnosed with autism. Every year since then, our family has walked with James' Grammy, aunts, uncles, cousins, close friends and more to show our love for a very special kid who never gives up! Now 13 years old, James, continues to make us proud everyday! James, we can't wait to celebrate you and all of your accomplishments again this year! Just keep swimming! We love you!!
We are excited to be raising money for the Doug Flutie, Jr., Foundation for Autism. Help us to support their vision of "A world where people with autism lead productive lives where they are included, respected, and actively engaged in their communities."
The Flutie Foundation's programs and activities improve the quality of everyday life for people and families affected by autism. They "provide a path for education and/or employment during the day; opportunities for physical and social activity outside of work/school; and the tools to be safe, supported, and informed at all times."
We appreciate any amount you can donate, as every little bit matters and will further the mission of helping autistic individuals (like our beloved James) live their lives to the fullest.
Thank you for your support for this cause that is so close to our hearts!
