Run, Ride and Swim in Support of Autism with Team Fraser
Nonprofit organization Fraser is gearing up for its second year of sponsoring race teams for many popular Twin Cities events. Participants will be part of Team Fraser, and will raise funds to support local families and individuals affected by autism.
What is Fraser?
Fraser is Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services, and also provides services for mental health and other developmental disabilities for children and adults. Team Fraser members have a variety of motivations, and include people who have family members with autism, people who are honoring friends or the children of friends, or those who just want to get in shape and race.
Fraser staff member Jordan Taylor works directly with individuals and families affected by autism in her position as a Developmental Trainee. She decided to join Team Fraser so that she could do more to support the individuals she works with every day.
The children and families I see at Fraser are full of so much joy, energy and kindness, and I wanted to give some of that back by joining the Team and helping the families I see on a daily basis,said Jordan.
Jordan participates in Team Fraser events with her family, and enjoys what the initiative is all about.
You become a member of a community that strives to raise not just money, but also awareness for autism! Being a part of Team Fraser not only benefits those with autism, it benefits you too!
