A Chesterton High
School junior is inviting folks to run or walk at 8 a.m. Saturday in a 5K
event at the CHS track to raise funds for autism outreach projects.
Natalie Petro has
organized the event on behalf of MAAP, Making Advancements for the Autistic
Population, established in Crown Point in 1984 with a focus on improving the
lives of autistic persons and those who interact with them through education
and awareness. The event costs $15 per participant, each of whom will
receive a tee-shirt.
Sign-up will be at
the track, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting MAAP
Services at (219) 662-1311 or Robert Petro at (312) 623-6642.
participants must sign waivers at the track on Saturday. Those under 18 must
have their parents sign waivers.
All proceeds will
be used by MAAP to support events in Porter, Lake, and LaPorte counties. If
you’re unable to participate but would still like to become a member or make
a donation, google OASIS @ MAAP.
