Walk, Run or Ride - Autism Niagara's Cycle for Autism TEAM COENS :)
That time of year is fast approaching, and what makes this year a little more EXTRA special is we are now riding for 2 of my boys, the past 2 years we have only rode for 1.
As stated in a previous post, friends of ours designed a logo for the boys - something to incorporate the 2 of them, something simple yet have so much underlining meaning. In literally 24 hours, we had over 20 shirts sold and then again in 48 hours, we had sold 40 shirts for our boys!
Years in the past, we had the walk completed and then all stayed together and had lunch - which we are going to do again this year. Last year down-poured, and Owen and I completed 10K in the thunderstorm all the while Owen was trying to strip out of his clothes as they were wet.
I was so proud of us in that moment, we completed a huge run together, in the rain - and Owen did it. I felt like it was a vibe through us, a feeling - that Owen will always know I am the one with him, through the therapy, the appointments, the tantrums, the stimulation's, and the thunderstorms running in a t-shirt .. it is you and I.. hand in hand - I am always here, no matter what.
