Cheer On Autistic Boston Marathon Runner, Jonathan Brunot!

Six years ago, an autistic young man by the name of Jonathan Brunot could not complete one lap around a track. On April 15, 2013, 24-year-old Jonathan will be running his 9th marathon! And what makes this event that much more special is that he'll be doing it in support of Autism Awareness Month.

When Jonathan's brother, Verlaine Brunot, reached out and asked me to help spread the word about Jonathan's latest conquest, I could not have been more honored or proud.

5 Ways You Can Support Jonathan And Others Who Have Autism...

  1. Like his Facebook Page
  2. Donate to Autism Speaks in his honor
  3. Read more about Jonathan and share his story
  4. Start or become active in a local running club for individuals on the Autism Spectrum
  5. Track him via Athlete Alert on race day and receive alerts when he crosses 10K, halfway, 30K, 40K and the finish line! Text the word RUNNER to # 345678. Wait for a confirmation text
    Simply reply back to the confirmation text with his bib number: 20973

Share this graphic to help spread the word!
