Three Miles, Three Journeys: Brielle’s Journey

Our annual 5K & 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk is so much more than just a run. It’s a celebration of our participants, our families, and our community. As Eden Autism’s largest annual fundraiser, the 5K brings together people from all across the state to help support our mission to improve the lives of individuals with autism. 

To help celebrate this year’s 5K, we’re sharing a family’s story for every mile of the race — three miles, three journeys. 

For mile two, we sat down with the Sherman family to learn about their daughter, Brielle, a student at the Eden School. Brielle’s journey is one of  resilience, growth, and an endless ability to learn.
