Team Shane - Born To Run

Fact: 1 in 34 children are diagnosed with Autism in the state of NJ. Our son Shane is one of them.

Here are our Top Five Reasons why we work so hard to raise money for POAC Autism Services which is very dear to our hearts:

1. POAC has provided free training to over 67,000 first responders with its Autism Shield Training in the state of New Jersey and it is accredited with saving over 100 lives.

2. POAC receives NO state funding for all that they do. NO state funding for all of the first responder training at the police academies throughout the state or first responder training in the towns. All of their trainings, educational workshops for families and events are all funded from walks like this one.

3. We see first hand where the money goes. They use every penny wisely to help many families all over the State of New Jersey.

4. They will come to your community and train your first responders for free: Fire, Police, and EMS. Reach out to POAC. They are making NJ a safer place for our kids to live.

5. They have provides over 300 free events last year in 2018 for families affected by Autism. If you come to an event, you will see the joy and smiles on the faces of our kids. It is amazing. It's a place where no one judges, and friendships have been made with other families that are going through a similar journey in the Autism world.

Please consider donating or joining our team!! The walk is June 2nd.

All of our Best,

Kristy & Richie
