On July 31st, Team A.F.A.R. (Ascent for Autism Research), including yours truly, will head up the Emmons Route on Rainier. Our goals are to raise awareness about autism, which affects 1 in 166 kids in the U.S., and to raise funds for Autism Speaks, a charity that supports research into the causes and treatment of autism.
