Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc.
Please note that the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc. 2021 Boston Marathon Charity team is full.
The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism was founded in 1997 by former Boston College and NFL quarterback, Doug Flutie and his wife Laurie in honor of their son, Dougie, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. The Flutie Foundation's mission is to help people and families affected by autism live life to the fullest. We are able to do this through our programs and activities that improve the quality of everyday life for people and families affected by autism along seven key dimensions that are critical to living each day fully. We aim to provide a path for education and/or employment during the day; opportunities for physical and social activity outside of work/school; and the tools to be safe, supported, and informed at all times.
Dougie's Team, the endurance fundraising platform of the Flutie Foundation, helps to make the mission and goal of the Flutie Foundation possible through both fundraising and spreading awareness. Members of the 2021 Boston Marathon Dougie's Team will receive:
- Guaranteed entry for the 2021 Boston Marathon
