I wanted to update everyone on my Fit 4 Autism movement. As of today 10/31/2010 we have walked,ran,hiked and biked over 9890 miles. That is is an AMAZING accomplishment. The truly amazing part is that we only have about 12 active members right now. Think of what we could accomplish with many more people. I want to say special THANK YOU to my new friend in Europe for joing the cause and giving a a massive boost. Thank you to everyone involved.
I came up with the idea of ”Fit 4 Autism“ a few months ago. It’s kind of a play on word’s. However, it’s way more then that. As special needs parents we need to be able to take care of our children for as long as possible. The unfortunate truth is that many of us dedicate so much time and energy to our children that we fail to take care of ourselves.
“Fit 4 Autism” is a challenge I’ve issued to myself and now to you. That challenge is to start doing things to improve your overall health and fitness. Simple things like eating healthier and becoming more physically active. Parking farther away from the store (when possible) or simply walking. As a father to 3 special needs kids (all Autistic) I know how difficult it is to make the time to do this but honestly we can’t afford not to. Who will be their for our kids if we aren’t. We owe it to them as well as ourselves to be as happy and healthy as possible for as long as possible.
