I've participated in Athletes 4 Autism since I moved to the Charlotte, NC area and it gets bigger and better every year. I really believe that if you are going to do something, then it better be for the greater good. Athletes 4 Autism is exactly that. Much of my lifestyle revolves around movement and fitness and there is no better way to do something good for the community than to combine both fitness and fundraising. It just makes sense.
Autism speaks provides opportunities for children to be successful in life. I was fortunate enough to have the resources I needed to set myself up for success later in life. I feel there is no reason why all children shouldn't have the same opportunities that I did, if not more.
I'm thrilled to be an ambassador this year. Let's get together and raise as much money as possible for Autism Speaks of North Carolina.
