My Story

Hi there. Thanks for donating or joining Team Savarese. I am honored to be the Executive Director of the Flutie Foundtion. We are passionate about two things at the Flutie Foundation: helping people and families affected by autism, and having fun while doing so. This race is the perfect example of that. Your donations will help people and families affected by autism TODAY through our grant and direct financial support programs. Thanks so much!


Join me in reaching my goal for Dougie's Epic Adventure: A Magical Flutie 5K, to raise critical funds for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism to help people and families affected by autism live life to the fullest! 

Former NFL Quarterback, Doug Flutie, and his wife Laurie started the Doug Flutie, Jr. Flutie Foundation for Autism in 1998 after their son, Dougie, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Their personal experience of raising a son on the autism spectrum inspired them to help others on an equally long and challenging journey. Over its 22-year history, the Flutie Foundation has distributed over $15 million to partner schools and organizations who provide clinical therapies, respite services, recreational programs, social skills training, job supports and more for people and families affected by autism.The Flutie Foundation also provides direct financial support to families through initiatives like education technology tools, adaptive camp scholarships, safety equipment, to provide immediate help where it's needed the most.
