As many of you know, my six-year-old son Caleb was diagnosed with Autism as a child, and as a result I've made it a personal mission to raise awareness and research funds for Autism. Additionally, my amazing father-in-law Kenny Wilson is going to do a Half-Ironman (1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride, and a 13.1-mile run) in order to raise money for Autism Speaks, and I'd like to help!

Following Kenny's remarkable example, I've been working to lose weight this year - 30 pounds down already, and 15 more to go! For the month of September, I'm going to go through The Whole30 diet plan (, and I'd love to have your support! 

I'm asking you to pledge a donation to Kenny for every pound I lose in September - if you pledge $5 per pound and I lose 5 pounds, then that's $25 to Autism research! You can join by filling out the form below, and then following my progress on my Facebook Page (

You can find the pledge form here:

You can also just donate directly to Kenny on his fundraising page here: And also feel free to join me in The Whole30 challenge, or just commit to living as healthfully as possible for the month of September (and beyond)!

Thanks so much for your support, and I'll see you at the gym!
