Just wanted to spread the word that on August 25th I and fellow Highpointer Kevin Sweeney will be climbing Mt. Whitney in a fundraising effort called "Ascent for Autism Research" (AFAR). Despite affecting 1 in 166 children in the U.S. (my daughter Jordan included), autism is one of the lowest funded areas of medical research from either private or public sources.
All donations are tax deductible and will go directly to the National Alliance for Autism Research
. If you'd like to contribute or just to learn more, please visit the web page I've set up at 8thsummit.com
