When & Where
My name is Amy Zirkelbach,
Let me tell you about an awesome kid named Desmond. He is my son and he has a form of (ASD) Autism Spectrum Disorder. It is a disorder in which effects thousands of people in our community every day. This disorder involves delay in social /communication abilities and learning development.
Desmond has been such a blessing for our family. He can shine a light on anyone's day, if you just spent a few moments interacting with him. He has his own ways of expressing himself and getting everyone's attention. In this past few years that Desmond has attended Charles F. Tigard Elementary school he has shown tremendous improvement in his social and communication abilities. I thank everyone who has supported Desmond at this school. I want to continue helping my son succeed in his education, but the funds are not always available to the special education department to meet the needs of the children with many disorders like Desmond.
OUR MISSION is to help make people aware of ASD in our schools and support our teachers/staff in the Tigard - Tualatin school district by raising funds at the I Run For Desmond Community Fun Run.
