Delos artist Lawrence Brownlee is asking his friends and colleagues to donate to Autism research for every pound he loses during the month of September, in support of his son Caleb as part of his “September Weight Loss Challenge & Autism Fundraiser.”
“As many of you know, my six-year-old son Caleb was diagnosed with Autism as a child, and while he is doing fantastically, I still believe it’s important to raise awareness and research funds for Autism. 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!” —Lawrence Brownlee
