We are so excited for the 3rd annual Lincoln’s Way Autism Awareness 5K Run / Walk at Lincoln’s favorite place, Wildlife Prairie Park!
This year for Lincoln’s Way, 100% of the proceeds are being donated to an amazing organization, The Autism Collective (through OSF Healthcare Children’s Hospital of IL). The Autism Collective coordinates early identification, diagnosis, therapy, services and support. They not only serve children but also adults as they continue to connect individuals to local resources they need to thrive in our community.

When our Lincoln was a baby he crushed milestones but when he was 18 months old he had a severe allergic reaction to amoxicillin which hospitalized him. After his reaction, we didn’t hear his sweet little voice again until he turned five years old. Little did we know that day would be the catalyst to this Autism journey that we’re now on.
Autism is an up and down battle, there are good days and there are down right hard days but we will never give up. We fight every day for the services and therapies our son needs to make him successful. We started Lincoln’s Way three years ago in hopes of one day being able to pay for an entire year of a child’s therapy – we had no idea how successful our little foundation would become and how many peoples lives we would touch.
