Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Foundation Financial Group employees at its Jacksonville Regional Sales Center, located at 225 Water Street, participated in the Jacksonville Walk Now event that benefited Autism Speaks on September 29th. The FFG team volunteered their time in support, and also made a monetary donation to the cause.
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
Autism Speaks goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. The non-profit organization is dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure to autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. Autism Speaks is committed to raising the funds necessary to support its goals.
Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to its concerns and take action to address the urgent global health crisis. AS believes that by working together, it is possible to find the missing pieces of the puzzle. Autism Speaks. It’s time to listen.
“I am excited that we are able to lend our continued support to the amazing Autism Speaks cause. Autism is a disorder that hits very close to home for us here at FFG, as one of our own has an autistic daughter. We love that we can come out and support the Walk Now event in Morgan’s name,” said Foundation Financial Group Event Coordinator, Gregory Trew. “I am proud to work for a corporation that is aware of the needs of people in our local community and goes above and beyond to help.”
