Our Story

HeartShare Human Services of New York is teaming up with the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism for the 21st Annual Flutie 5k! As we all know this year has been unlike any other. While we have seen so much generosity for those in need, the truth is people, particularly adults with developmental disabilities and their families, still need our help and support. That is why we are teaming up with the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation and raising money for HeartShare while participating in a great cause.


Help our team reach our 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.
