Syracuse, NY: Nutritionist Sherry Brescia teamed with St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Camillus, NY and turned a 26.2 mile run into a donation for local autistic children. Brescia, owner of Holistic Blends, Inc. (a Syracuse area nutrition-based company) ran Syracuse’s Empire State Marathon on October 9, after collecting pledges from fellow St. Luke’s parishioners that her company matched, and presented a $2,860 check today to the Central New York Autism Society (CNY ASA).
Of this marathon-turned-fundraiser Brescia stated, “Knowing that I was raising money for local autistic children gave a whole new meaning to this run. In my line of work I have seen the devastating effects of autism, not only on the individuals but also on their family members. I am honored to provide some much-needed support for these families.”
