World Autism Day

Today is World Autism Day

We are only beginning to understand autism and autism spectrum disorders. These days, 1 in 150 children are diagnosed with autism, however severity can range from mild to severe. It is more common in boys than in girls: 1 in 94 boys is diagnosed. With this kind of prevalence, chances are very good that you know several people who are on the autism spectrum. Today is all about raising autism awareness. In honor of World Autism Day I am re-posting Jenn's Crawl for a Cause, Saturday May 2nd.

SAVE THE DATE -- MAY 2, 2009

What else do you have to do on a random Saturday in May when the Sox are out of town??? You know you will probably end up drinking somewhere so why not with us....and for a GREAT CAUSE!!! So when you wake up with a hangover Sunday morning you can feel good about it!!!

The proceeds from the CRAWL FOR A CAUSE will go to the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation in support of Autism. I am running in the Boston Marathon and am raising money for this organization in honor of my nephew who has autism (please see link below if you want to know more about the charity or the cause):

Still working on details of the crawl and will send out updates as I have them. But please respond on this evite if you are planning on attending because I need to get an estimate of attendees for the bars.



$20.00 DONATION (or more if you are inclined) will go directly to the foundation. With that donation you will receive a FREE t-shirt commemorating this great event, name tag and all specials included at each bar. Who knows you may even meet a couple new friends!


After many phone calls and extreme generosity by our local watering holes the crawl is planned and ready to rock. Please read below for all the details!!!
