WHAT...Dougie’s Team consists of individuals who participate in a variety of sporting events to raise money for the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism. Some have a family member, close friend or colleague who is living with autism. Others are runners looking to add some meaning to their next marathon. Some are simply moved by the story of Doug & Laurie Flutie, whose personal experience of having a child diagnosed with autism, inspired them to help others. Whatever your motivation, we welcome you!
WHY...To encourage acceptance and raise awareness about autism, while raising money to create programs and partnerships that are helping families affected by autism live life to the fullest.
HOW....Whether you run, participate in triathlons, cycle, or hike, there's a place for you on Dougie’s Team! Pick an event, register, complete a Dougie's Team application. Start training!
