Walking for Peyton!
One great thing I came across in my Autism Newsletter, was the Puget Sound Walk for Autism Speaks. It doesn't happen until Sept. 17th, so I will be mobile by then, and it is meant for the whole family. That means all five of us Morgans will be heading up to Seattle to walk, and I am hoping to recruit others to join us. Most of my family is hoping to participate. I think it will be a lot of fun as well as productive. Of course, the point is to raise money for Autism resources and research, but it is also about Autism awareness. If any of you want to join the team, we would be thrilled or if you want to make a donation that is great too! We have a team page at http://www.walknowforautismspeaks.org/pugetsound/peyton
It feels great to be participating, I often feel like a bystander and leech to others hard work instead of part of the solution. Cheesy, yes, but I am hoping this can become a family tradition and something that we can use to eventually help Peyton connect to others like him and help him understand more about his diagnosis.
