Richard Spurling, president and co-founder of ACEing Autism, a nonprofit that provides tennis programs for children with autism, emails, “On April 22, ACEing Autism held its second annual Racquet Run at UCLA. More than 100 runners raised funds for ACEing Autism, helping to provide scholarships to participants in the program. Three other cities (Pittsburgh; Charlotte, N.C.; and Stuart, Fla.) held Racquet Runs at the end of April to close out Autism Awareness Month.” Here, Richard is crossing the finish line while bouncing a ball on a racquet at the UCLA race.
