Will You Support My Fundraising Goal?

Jaime Gordon

This is our 4th year participating in the Friendship Circle Walk. It is very fitting to me that this years theme is FC Pride. As a parent of a child with autism- and two neurotypical children I often find myself feeling isolated from other parents whose children are neurotypical. Rather than concentrating on all of the things we cannot participate in as a family because of Dylan's autism I have realized what pride I have for my friends and family and entire community who hold us up in so many different ways. The Friendship Circle has created a community for all three of my children to attend events together with support for all of us. This past year has been more difficult than most on many levels but when I was asked to speak in April about my experiences as a parent raising a child with special needs at the annual Gala instead of breaking down into tears about how hard it is for my son living with autism, his two siblings and myself- I looked into the audience of over 400 people- so many new faces and the old ones- and felt such pride for my community who has wrapped their arms and hearts around my family with their involvement in this beautiful organization that does so much for so many. I felt pride as I talked about my son and the way he has embraced this community- how happy Sunday Circles make him and how he can attend these events with Nico and Jemma. I felt pride for all the new families that have become involved this year and are making such a difference and helping FC to grow so no new family needs to be turned away. This organization charges nothing for all that they do for my family and others in similar circumstances. The walk is a free wonderful community event- please come walk with us - and support if you can- Team Godylango. If your company would like to be a sponsor- that would be great- we expect over 1000 people at the walk and you can have your name of the shirts that are given out for free to every walker.
Thank you for your support of my Dylan and this wonderful organization that makes such a difference in the lives of so many.
Any way you feel comfortable getting involved would mean the world to me and to them. Donating, Walking, Fundraising, Sponsoring, Volunteering...we are proud to have you getting involved.
Love xoxoxo - Jaime
