Race Results - Colemans Run, part 2

Got some more results from Coleman's Run:
There were 230 runners who raised over $10,900 for autism research
Donations raised will go to:
  • Funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatment and cure for autism.
  • Providing support to help families living with autism.
  • Raising public awareness about autism.
  • Supporting advocacy efforts for both state and federal initiatives.
Today, 1 in 88 children are affected by autism (compared to just 5 years ago when 1 in 150 were diagnosed)! With this increasing rate, the importance of continuing to raise funds has also increased. Every dollar raised means we are one step closer to finding the answers.

Please send donations to:
Autism Speaks
Attn: Autism Speaks U: Liberty
1 East 33rd Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY 10016

and here are two pictures of me, coming in 25th.
