I am participating in the Rodman Ride for Kids to support AANE -- a nonprofit with a mission that means a great deal to me personally. AANE helps people with Asperger's or similar autism spectrum and neurodiverse profiles build meaningful, connected lives. They provide individuals, families, and professionals with information, education, community, support, and advocacy — all in an inclusive atmosphere of validation and respect.

Of course, I work for AANE, and your support helps me be successful with my job :) But I am "riding" for AANE this year because I want AANE to continue to be a resource for my family and the thousands of individuals and families AANE serves every year. For my family, we have found a community who understands us, and we don't feel isolated in our journey. My hope is that when Emma becomes an adult, she too will find a supportive community at AANE.

Your donation of any amount will help me reach my fundraising goal. 100% of the funds that I raise will directly support AANE’s life-changing programs and services.

Please know how much your support means to me and the thousands of individuals and families AANE serves each year.

PS, if you prefer to make a donation by check, that is fine! Make your check out to AANE and mail it to: AANE - 51 Water Street, Suite 206 - Watertown, MA 02472. Be sure to write "Erica Remi's Rodman Ride" in the memo!
