A cool, crisp fall morning, the Washington Monument gleaming against the sunny, blue sky, gravel crunching under our feet . . . pardon me while I wax poetic about the 2014 DC Walk Now for Autism Speaks annual fundraising event for Autism research!
We are excited and humbled to announce that as a result of your generous support, Team Collabie exceeded our ambitious $18,500.00 fundraising goal. Combined with our sponsorship, Collaborative Solutions is donating nearly $30,000.00 to Autism Speaks!
This year marked Collaborative Solutions’ sixth year as an Autism Speaks sponsor. On October 5th, our team of more than 30 Collabies and their family members gathered on the National Mall, joining 10,000 other supporters for the march, followed by our Collabie company picnic.
Collaborative Solutions has a history of giving back to the community. With Autism Speaks as our primary philanthropy, Collaborative also participates with several other charities, including Paint George Pink, a nonprofit managed by one of our own consultants, that helps breast cancer patients pay for their treatments.
A huge thank you to all of you who donated to Team Collabie to support Autism Speaks and its incredible mission.
