Walk now for Autism

Hello family and friends,

I am participating in Walk Now for Autism to help find a cure for autism. Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 150 children born today. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Every 20 minutes another child is diagnosed with autism. Not only must we find ways to improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism, but we also must find a cure, and soon. 

Walk Now for Autism is our chance to make a difference in the fight against autism by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness. Please join me in my fight as I raise $2,000 to help fund essential research. I will be walking on November 8th and would like you to support those affected by autism. You can donate to Walk Now for Autism and join my team online through my webpage at Donations can also be mailed to Autism Speaks using the donation form located on my page or send me a check made out to Autism Speaks. My team name is 'Marching for Mandy,' please note this on your check and the donation form. 

Please join me in my fight against autism. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the more than 1 million Americans living with autism today.
