March 19, 2015

David Wade, a multiple award-winning journalist who anchors WBZ-TV News in Boston recently wrote a blog for CBS Boston about his participation in this year’s Boston Marathon on April 20th. 

Wade who chose Autism Speaks as his charity for the race this yearwrote in his blog…

“So, who am I running for? I am running for children with autism. I am running for my little nephew Jacob. I am running for Autism Speaks…

I won’t be able to raise millions for research. I may not be able to raise thousands. But I am blessed to have a job that allows me to shine a spotlight on things.”

Wade will be running as part of Team Up! with Autism Speaks. You can learn more about how you can get involved with Team Up! here.
