Dear Friends and Family
Once again, for the 16th year in a row, Bradley will be running in the Run For Autism 5K. As you probably know, VIA has been literally been our family's lifeline since we were lucky enough to become a part of this wonderful organization in 2002. Not only has VIA proven to be the best school for him as a child, it now provides a life for him as an adult with autism. No longer do we have to fear for Bradley's future with no services, as is the case for the sad majority of the 1:68 individuals with autism. At VIA, Bradley continues to prosper as an adult, learning new skills while volunteering for community organizations, as well as continuing to work on personal and social skills within the safe walls of the adult academy.
Without this wonderful place, families like our's would have nowhere to turn and no hope for the future. VIA has grown to serve hundreds of children and adults with autism throughout VA. Without your continued generous support, VIA cannot continue to serve as our lifeline. Rod and I are so very grateful for your support over the years and invite you to join Team Bradley to participate in the 5K itself or please sponsor our boy who tries so very hard.
Thank you so much for your support!
Bradley, Rod, and Tracy
