My Story…

Ready for my third year running the Toronto Waterfront Marathon 5km race - virtually this time! Once again, I'm running to raise money for Autism Ontario. My incredible son, Alex, is autistic, and my reason for running. Each and every day Alex amazes me as I watch him take in and process the world in his own special way. Nothing is going to stop Alex, and we want to ensure he has all the support he needs. Autism Ontario is a superb organization that so many across the province depend upon, so please consider even a small donation to this worthwhile effort!


Autism Ontario has participated in the Toronto Scotiabank Charity Challenge since 2013, to raise funds for our work supporting over 135,000 Ontarians - of all ages - on the autism spectrum.  Our participants represent our 'family' - Board Directors, parents, siblings, staff, volunteers, friends, professionals and autistic individuals. 100% of funds raised come directly to Autism Ontario, and it's easy to fundraise.  Do something that makes you feel good!  

The work we do helps all autistic individuals and families in their communities have access to meaningful supports, information, and connections so they are equitably and seamlessly supported across their life course. You are helping us make these a reality.
