So many families are affected by autism. I know, I am one of them. My name is Mike, and my wife Jeannie and I are proud parents of four children, two of whom are autistic. We established the Polar Bear Run/Walk for Autism in Sea Isle City to generate funds for autism awareness, advocacy and family services in 2008 with the goal of raising a couple of hundred dollars and to spreading awareness of Autism within our community. Over the past decade, the Polar Bear Run/Walk for Autism has generated nearly $1 Million to benefit Special Service Schools, Autism Support Groups, and Families of Special Needs Children.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic our Annual Run/Walk for Autism 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk held over Presidents Day weekend is cancelled. In an effort to continue raising Autism Awareness and funds, we are launching our Around the World in 80 Days campaign. Our Polar Bear will be leaving Sea Isle City , NJ on Thanksgiving Day with the goal of making it Around the World or 24,901 miles and back home by Sunday, February 14.

For every $10 donated towards our organization, our polar bear will move 1 Mile! Please help us move our Polar Bear Around the World! We appreciate your generosity and support!
