AutismOklahoma Family and Friends Team "Nathan's Voice"



     The fifth annual AutismOklahoma PieceWalk & 5K was yesterday morning Saturday, May 3, 2014. The annual AutismOklahoma PieceWalk & 5K is always the first Saturday of May and it is organized by the PieceWalk Committee of AutismOklahoma.org, a grass roots nonprofit concerned with helping families across Oklahoma. Our AutismOklahoma PieceWalk Family and Friends Team "Nathan's Voice" participate each year in support of our son, Nathan, and everyone affected by the autism spectrum disorder. AutismOklahoma PieceWalk & 5K is the largest single autism event in the state of Oklahoma. Last year, the 2013 AutismOklahoma PieceWalk was attended by over 7,500 people, with over 700 runners in the 5K. The always anticipated, annual AutismOklahoma PieceWalk & 5K generates monies back into the Oklahoma community in the form of grants or special projects and provides basic operating funds for the local nonprofit, AutismOklahoma.org. Our AutismOklahoma PieceWalk Family and Friends Team "Nathan's Voice" is very excited to be a part of such an AWESOME opportunity to "pay it forward" in the autism community!!  
     Nathan, our ten year old son was diagnosed with Autism six years ago. Please consider supporting our AutismOklahoma PieceWalk Family and Friends Team "Nathan's Voice" by walking with us on Saturday, May 3, 2014 and/or making a donation towards the 2014 AutismOklahoma PieceWalk, through our effort to "pay it forward"! You are always welcome to follow our AutismOklahoma PieceWalk Family and Friends Team on twitter @NathansVoice for updates on the upcoming walk.
     For my birthday this month, I want to "challenge" everyone to make a donation, of any size, in support of my AutismOklahoma  PieceWalk Family and Friends Team "Nathan's Voice" and the 2014 AutismOklahoma PieceWalk & 5K in which we participated earlier today. 100% of the PieceWalk funds are used for autism programming in Oklahoma. The goal of the PieceWalk is to fund projects in Oklahoma that willimprove awareness, education and quality of life for families and individuals affected by autism. We have a significant grass roots network of families who are involved with us to help their loved ones. AutismOklahoma has experienced exponential growth over the past several years. Last year, we targeted our programs to impact individuals, hundreds of people and thousands of people with our clubs, summer camps, parent support groups, and outreach programs. We are commited to providing a platform for families to help each other and will remain true to our goals and mission of serving Oklahomans affected by autism. Please visit the link for our AutismOklahoma  PieceWalk & 5K Family and Friends Team "Nathans Voice" to make a donation of any size. Thank YOU for your support!
