The goal of the Flutie Foundation is to improve the quality of life for people and families affected by autism.  We are dedicated to increasing the awareness of autism and the unique challenges of families who are faced with it everyday.  Funds raised by Dougie’s Marathon Team will be put toward supporting these families by helping them find the resources they need and by funding advocacy programs as well as educational, therapeutic and recreational opportunities.
