Glenholme just respects these kids and they are taught in a way that makes them feel like they can succeed and that is the difference. Glenholme saved my son's life.
WASHINGTON, Conn. (PRWEB) November 22, 2018
The Glenholme School held its fifth annual Run For Autism in mid-November as part of its tireless effort to raise awareness and funds for students with special needs.
The 3.1 mile race, held in Steep Rock Preserve along the Shepaug River of Washington, Connecticut, attracted 147 runners who stepped up to raise $2,500 to support Glenholme’s therapeutic programs. The event has become a community favorite with local business sponsors and area private school students enthusiastically volunteering and participating.
Devon Langworthy crossed the finish line at 18:56, taking first place overall. Anna Kallman easily earned first female finisher with a time of 22:56. Canines were incorporated in the mix as the top three dogs received well-deserved prizes.
Glenholme is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a school that has achieved worldwide acclaim for delivering meaningful life-changing results to students with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and those on the autism spectrum. We congratulate all the runners who made this event possible and recognizing the work needed for children and youth on the Spectrum.
