Mark it down now, the Eagles Autism Challenge is coming to the Underground on March 16th with a start time of 7pm! Featuring live music from Wineskin, Join Team JackRyan as they attempt to bring in the bucks for autism research. All tickets go directly to Team JackRyan, plus Team JackRyan will receive a portion of bar sales at the Underground that night. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door day of show.
For years, Victor Ykoruk has been assisting and cultivating support networks for families at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Having twin boys on the autism spectrum, he relates to the difficulties and uncertainties have when receiving a diagnosis of autism. Help support Team JackRyan as they strive to advance critical autism research, with the backing of your World Champion Philadelphia Eagles.
For the Eagles, much like Ykoruk, it’s personal. Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie, knows first hand the difficulties families face when rearing autistic children. Having nephews on the autistic spectrum, he recognized firsthand the need for support this cause.
The Eagles Autism Challenge, much like our beloved Eagles, demand a lot from those who take on this responsibility. This 5k run demands each team member to raise $250, with their own personal bank account on the line provided they cannot raise the funds. Following the 5k, the Eagles parse out fundraising monies in thirds, one third to CHOP, one third to Jefferson Health, and one third to Drexel University.
