Our Next Cause: Walk Now for Autism Speaks

Our own Marisa Mendoza is participating in a fundraiser Walk Now for Autism Speaks, an amazing organization. Let's let her tell you about it:

Please join me in my fight to make a difference in the lives of the more than 1 million Americans living with autism today.

I am participating in Walk Now for Autism Speaks to help find the missing pieces of autism. Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 88 children born today. Like My Daughter Alexis.

Alexis

She was diagnosed at the age of 2 . She is now 8 years old. And WOW!!! The progress she has made! It has been a rough journey but more than worth it to look at her and see how far she has come. I can’t wait to see what more amazing things she will accomplish. But none of it would be possible without this great organization an all the amazing people who donate to keep these resources available to those in need.

So Please Give the gift that can Change a Life!

Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders, and soon. Walk Now for Autism Speaks 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 money to help fund essential research. You can donate to Walk Now for Autism Speaks and/or join my team online using the links at the bottom of this page. 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.

Thank you for taking an important step in the fight against autism.

Can you help Marisa and Alexis help other children with Autism?
