Believe it or not the BC Class of 1988 will celebrate 35 years since our graduation! Watching Doug Flute play during our Freshman Year was a thrill we all enjoyed. In the spirit of the “Miracle in Miami” Hail Mary pass at the Orange Bowl, our class would like to honor the spirit and generosity of Doug, Laurie, and Doug Jr in their fundraising over the years for Autism.
Join our Team!
The Flute 5k means so much to me personally. I moved to Natick, MA 3 years ago and participated in my first Flutie 5k last year. It was emotional for me on many levels. Doug ran alongside the runners and he and Laurie were so warm in their appreciation and thanks for us all being there. My son is on the high side of the autism spectrum. I am so proud that he is working as a paraprofessional in the Boston Public Schools supporting kids with autism being included in mainstream classrooms.
We would love as many of our classmates, friends, and family to join our team and run/walk the 5k course. If you are not able to attend in Natick, you can also participate in a “Your Way 5k” in your own community. Following the race, I will be hosting a team after party in my house in Natick for everyone who can join us, whether you are able to attend the actual race or not. Another option to participate is to simply follow the Donate Now! Button to make a one time donation. I will set up a Facebook group to share more details and our progress toward our goal.

Why we are Fundraising!
We are excited to be raising money for the Doug Flutie, Jr., Foundation for Autism. We proudly share their vision: "A world where people with autism lead productive lives where they are included, respected, and actively engaged in their communities.” We are proud to support our fellow Eagle Doug and the Flutie Foundation's programs and activities to 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. Every little bit advances the Flutie Foundation's mission: "To help people and families affected by autism live life to the fullest."
