Due to an emergency in my family, the noder gathering portion of this event is cancelled. All donations collected will still be donated to the UAA this weekend and I promise that all of you who gave so very generously made a difference in a child's life.
If you live in the LA area I encourage you to go to the walk and have a great time - it is a worthy cause and a great excuse to get outside and have a good time, plus I heard Marky Mark will be there.
If you have any questions at all you can email me at email@example.com or /msg. I am truely sorry if I wrecked your weekend, thanks.
Some of you know and some of you don't know that I have a son who has autism.
Autism is a neurlogical disorder that used to be very rare but has been on the increase since the 1980's. There is currently no cure, and the best treatment is early intense intevention - which most families can't afford.
The United Autism Alliance has just broken away from the Autism Society of America (http://www.autism-society.org) so they dont have to charge membership dues to the families they help.
What: The United Autism Alliance 24th Annual Walk for Autism
Where: Griffith Park
When: June 8th, 2002
Walk begins at 9:15 (there will be a 1k and a 5k course)
