Fundraising Honor Roll

Did you know that there are over 54 million Americans living with a disability today? People with disabilities face many challenges everyday that you and I cannot imagine. But one of the most tragic barriers is a lack of understanding by our society. A simple message of empathy and acceptance is all it takes to break down this barrier, and I have committed myself to spreading this message this summer.

I will be raising awareness on behalf of people with disabilities by cycling from the west coast to Washington, DC on the Journey of Hope. My individual goal is to raise $5,500 as a part of my team’s goal of raising over $650,000. We will also be reaching out to thousands of people with disabilities along the way, and striving to spread our message of acceptance and understanding to more than 40 million people!

It is my hope that you will help me with my journey by making a tax deductible donation to Push America.

Thank you very much for your support. Together we can make a difference!

I am pursuing this dream to prove not only to myself, but to the world that nothing is impossible. When I was just a little boy, I was diagnosed with Autism and was told that I would never have a normal life. I am now 22 years old and I am still going strong and proudly representing Beta Alpha at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I will continue to lead my brothers to achieve new goals and reach new heights. I thank you all for the support!
