I am writing you today to offer you congratulations on behalf of the Autism Society of Prince Edward Island on your recent honour of being recognized as one of Canada's most inspiring runners by iRun magazine.
To receive such a recognition from a national publication speaks well to your success as a runner and in promoting greater awareness and understanding of Autism on Prince Edward Island. Your success is a shining example to all that individuals living with Autism can and do achieve great goals.
The struggle to promote greater acceptance and understanding of individuals living with Autism is not unlike a marathon run. It can be a long and winding road; it can physically, mentally and emotionally draining; and it requires focus and determination to succeed.
Your accomplishments are a shining example to all Islanders of the limitless potential that Islanders living with Autism possess. Again, congratulations on behalf of the Autism Society of Prince Edward Island on your most deserving award.
