Racing for Rylee
Welcome to Racing for Rylee's team! All the money raised goes directly to the Autism Society to help with programs that benefit individuals like Rylee. A quick recap for those joining us this year. Rylee was diagnosed with Autism when she was three, but there were signs much eariler. She is non-verbal, and has other issues like processing sensory disorder among others that she is currently getting therapies for. Rylee goes to Behavioral Consulting for Autism and they are awesome! She has achieved so much last year. She is now able to communicate with sign language. Its such a relief to be able to communicate with her now, it helps reduce her frustrations with getting her needs met. Rylee has therapies that help her with other needs as well. We hope you are able to join our team for a fun quick walk or run. If you're unable to participate you could still donate to the cause. This is a cause we all feel very deeply about. We have shirts we make up and if your interested in a yellow shirt we can arrange that for you if we can get a group that needs them. By registering on time they will provide you with an event shirt which you put on the register page. Thank everyone in advance and well see you at the start line!
