Hello Friends & Family:  I'm participating in the 2020 virtual Rodman Ride to support AANE — a nonprofit with a mission that means a great deal to me personally & professionally. 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.

In 2018 I led a team that created and then launched LifeNet (www.aane.org/LifeNet), the first independent living support program anywhere specifically designed for our adult population and their families. I'm pleased to report LifeNet is strong and growing, soon to expand further within MA and also into CT and NYC. 

Last year you helped me raise $5,000 for AANE through this Rodman Ride event. **Your donation of any amount will help me reach my 2020 STRETCH fundraising goal of $10,000.** Together, let's do it! 100% of the funds that I raise will directly support AANE’s life-changing programs and services, since Rodman Ride covers the event expenses, including credit card fees tied to online donations.

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