Making Waves for Autism: a Great Event for an Important Cause.
Mark Your Calendars: August 22, 2009, at 9:00 am, Monmouth County will come together to show support and raise money for Autism, a tragic and life-impairing brain disorder that affects a growing proportion of American children.
By: Jenny Strakovsky, Currents Online
Autism is a highly variable brain development disorder which impairs a child’s social communication and ability to interact with others. In many cases, it affects children’s language development and inhibits a development of intuitions that many people take for granted, such as understanding non-verbal communication. Children with autism tend to exhibit repetitive and compulsive behaviors, like stacking and lining up objects, repetitive body movements like hand-flapping and head-rolling, self-injury, and a strong avoidance of eye contact.
Now, our community is coming together to take a stand for those suffering from this disorder. On August 22nd at 9:00 am, everyone will join together at Chris's River View Plaza Marina, Red Bank, to take their boats around Lady Liberty and back down the Navesink. Riders will drive together as a group, and food and activities will be available back at the Marina. All proceeds from the event will go to "Improving Middletown's Program for Autistic Children Together." Sponsor a Wave Runner, participate, or support this great cause however you can!
