Bike to the Beach

Captain: Monica Martinez

Washington, DC 2018


Join our team and help us support the cause! We are participating in an annual fundraising bike ride to raise money for Autism awareness and research called Bike to the Beach. Our goal is to raise awareness and money to help those whose lives are touched by Autism, a neurological disorder that affects 1 out of every 59 children. 

We are especially excited to be raising money to support the work of the Montgomery County based non-profit Partnership for Extraordinary Minds (xMinds). xMinds is the only organization in Maryland solely focused on improving the educational experiences and outcomes of autistic students in grades K-12.  Learn more about our work at www.xminds.org. 

We need your support to provide self-advocacy training for students on the autism spectrum; advocacy support and a sense of community for parents; and evidence-based training for public school educators. 

We would appreciate any effort on your behalf to support our journey and improve the lives of students and families touched by Autism. If you would like to donate to help improve the lives of autistic Marylanders , please contribute to our fundraising page.
