The last time we wrote about running was way back in January following our first-ever half marathon at Walt Disney World (read about it here: Post-WDW Half Marathon Thoughts) and we teased about not quite knowing what race to do next…well, that day has arrived, my friends!
Connor and I will be running the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare Challenge this September (a 10K on Saturday followed by a half marathon on Sunday of Labor Day weekend) in support of Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
We are raising $1,930 (for our 19.3 miles) for Autism Speaks! To celebrate World Autism Awareness Day today, April 2, we are asking our friends, families, and colleagues to contribute to this great cause. Any amount given is greatly appreciated and will go a long way toward autism research. Head on over to our fundraising page for more information:
NatCon Dumbo Double Dare Challenge 19.3 miles for $1930.
Like our months leading up to the Walt Disney World Half Marathon, we’ll be documenting our Dumbo Double Dare training on social media via #NatConTraining. Follow along, share your comments and enthusiasm, and help us meet our goal to support Autism Speaks.
