October 2nd marked our 9th time getting dressed for the weather to trek out to the Autism Speaks Walk on Long Island. Our son Troy who has autism is at an age now where he knows about his condition and he’s pretty open about it. It’s incredibly cool actually how he can sometimes be so comfortable in his own skin. He talks about having autism and he really appreciates all the friends and family that come out or donate to support him.
I did a rough addition of the money we’ve raised over these 9 years and was amazed it was over $11,000. Not too bad but 2017’s walk is going to be super special. It will be out 10th and Troy will be 13. Go big or go home I always say and 2017 is definitely going big. Stay tuned.
