This post is about Kaitlyn Morris, Senior Coordinator of Field Development for Autism Speaks in Georgia & Tennessee. You can donate to Kaitlyn’s fundraising page for Walk Now For Autism Speaks here.
Kaitlyn ended Autism Awareness Month by challenging friends and family to help her raise $1,000 in order for her to bungee from a 108-story building off the Las Vegas strip during her vacation. To date, Kaitlyn has raised $1,600 for Bungee4Blue and took the big jump in honor of the 1 in 68 children and to raise funds and awareness for autism.
Exactly a year ago, Kaitlyn started out as a 90-day temporary employee at Autism Speaks and has since been a permanent team member and valuable addition to the organization. She is not personally affected by autism, but is a huge champion for the cause and is touched by each individual on the spectrum she meets.
Here’s her Thank You note to donors as well as a link to her bungee video and personal Walk fundraising page:
What an amazing experience #Bungee4Blue turned out to be. I am so incredibly thankful for your continuous support in helping spread awareness for the 1 in 68 children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Autism Speaks. I hope you enjoy this video below that was created on my jump experience.
I am already brainstorming for 2015 and can't wait to see where it takes me. Many thanks again for making #Bungee4Blue a memory I will never forget.
