One of the last things Marquita wished to do running wise was to host her very own
Autism Awareness run. After her son, AJ, was classified with the disorder, she wanted
to advocate for not only him but other children with the same challenges.
Today and forever, we are continuing her legacy. This year we will be raising money for
AJ’s school, which serves Autistic children, and Marquita’s special education
department at her last high school she taught at.
Please visit thebodyprjct.com/quita to sign up and donate.
Then, join on us Monday, December 9th at 7PM as we run and walk in
memory of Quita and in awareness of Autism.
Even if you have never ran before, even if you never had the pleasure of meeting her,
There will be a walking group, food, and good company. Bring kids of all ages.
This is for the running community. This is for the Autism community. This is for Quita
