Unisource Sponsors Team At Autism Awareness Run

Are you looking to donate to a great cause? Well, look no further because Dylan’s Run is taking place on Sunday, September 7th at 10:00 A.M.! Dylan’s Run is a two-mile run/walk for Autism that has been happening annually since 2001. Dylan is a student in the Milwaukee area who has been diagnosed with autism since the age of 2. Autism is a developmental disability that is caused by a neurological disruption in the brain. It typically becomes apparent in the early years of a child’s life.

Thousands of people gather each year to help bring autism awareness, and fund autism research. The run takes place on the lakefront of the beautiful Lake Michigan and Harbor Island during the annual Indian Summer festival! Enjoy free admission to the festival after participating in Dylan’s Run. Opening ceremonies begin at 9:45 A.M. so be sure to get there a bit early!

It is a mission of Unisource to support the local Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin (ASSEW). One of Unisource’s own, Andrea Nelson, sits on the ASSEW’s Board of Directors. Therefore, Unisource has chosen to be a sponsor of Dylan’s Run! The Unisource team has chosen the name “Lovely Lila’s Legion” in support of Andrea’s 13 year-old daughter, Lila who has been diagnosed with autism. Please contact Unisource Insurance Associates, located in Wauwatosa if you have any insurance inquiries, or are interested in making a donation!
