Timmy's Team Raises Over 15K!

Congratulations and a big “THANK YOU” are in order for DDI Board Member, Kevin Long. His charity organization, "Timmy's Team," successfully raised over $15,000 for people with autism and other developmental disabilities this past Sunday by participating in the 2021 Philadelphia Marathon.

In addition to being a longstanding board member, Kevin competes in marathons across the country to raise funds for the children and adults served by DDI as well as the staff dedicated to supporting them. Over the years, he has raised upwards of $135,000!

This year, Kevin set a goal of $10,000. Through his GoFundMe page, he raised an impressive $7,580, which he generously matched for a grand total of $15,160 on behalf of Timmy’s Team! The money raised will go toward DDI’s “Greatest Needs” fund, providing tools, technology, infrastructure and resources for the children and adults we care for.

Kevin, we are so proud of you for breaking your personal record with a time of 3:51:35.

Thank you for your remarkable generosity.

And thank you, Timmy, for being such a precious source of inspiration for us all.Giving Tuesday is November 30th. If you would like to join this global day of giving, we invite you to support Timmy’s Team by visiting Kevin’s  GoFundMe page
