Pledging for my Run for Autism can begin!

24 Mar

Today marks an exciting milestone in my journey towards my run for autism.  I registered for the race back in November or December – about three seconds after race registrations opened.  About a month later, I registered for a number of other races over the course of the summer months – events that I will participate in as I lead up to the main event in September.  I have my training plans, my custom orthotics, my training watch with heart rate monitor and GPS.  As time goes on, I will need to get some new running gear, including a new pair of shoes.

Today is a milestone day for two reasons.  The first is that I since I am not only a runner but a member of the Geneva Centre for Autism committee that is organizing this endeavour, I will be attending the first committee meeting later on.  There, we will set our fundraising goals and discuss ways to get more people to participate, either by running or by pledging.I will be a runner’s voice on the committee, offering my views on how to encourage and motivate runners leading up to the event, and ways to ensure their success on the day itself.

And secondly, the race organizers have officially opened up the Charity Challenge, meaning that my own personal fundraising page is now up and running.  I invite one and all to click on the link and take a look.  Look at the pictures that I’ve uploaded, watch a couple of videos and see the beautiful boy that is my inspiration, my son who I am doing this for.  If you are interested in adding a pledge, it will be very gratefully accepted and will make a positive difference to someone with autism.

More pictures and videos will be added to this page as time goes on. But for now, this is what I’ve got.  I am so excited that this is all now official!
