    Shannon Urquiola, Not Your Average Autism Mom
    I am mom to two amazing young adults. My son Jordan is 25 and was diagnosed with autism
    when he was 5-years old. He also has a younger sister Madison who is 23. My journey to
    today really began on the day I got Jordan’s diagnosis.
    I remember that day like it was yesterday. Being so confused, not being able to stop the tears,
    asking WHY ME? Those feelings of being alone when no one in my family had a child with
    autism, all my friends who had their children before me, none of them had a child with autism?
    When you have a child with autism you find yourself feeling isolated and alone.
    I spent 10 years building an Educational Advocacy company and working with special needs
    families and advocates across the US when Jordan was in middle and high school. During
    those years, the realization that Jordan would be living with me forever became noticeably clear.
    That was my reality, so I knew I had to figure out how I was going to embark on that journey
    showing up every day as the best version of myself. It was at that time I began working with a
    Life Coach, and through that coaching and training, I began to really understand how I needed
    to think differently to feel differently and it was truly a turning point in my life.
    I went on to become a certified Life Coach and today, inside of our private membership, not only
    do we have an array of autism training and resources that they need along this unique parenting
    journey, but we include an entire coaching program as well. I am coaching our moms on
    becoming more confident and courageous throughout their parenting journey.
    I am extremely passionate about the world of autism and more specifically the challenges that
    moms raising a child with autism have along the way. We are a place for them to learn and
    grow forming friendships along the way with other moms traveling the same journey. It is truly
    an amazing place to be.

    Interview with David Boyer, Resort Manager at Bluegreen Vacations

    My name is David Boyer. I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 25 years. I have always been obsessed with providing great customer service and creating incredible vacation memories. Once Brady came into our lives, we looked at things differently. A lot of the things we did as a family was taken for granted. Just going to the store, yet alone on vacation was more of a challenge. It was more difficult to do things as a family. Once we moved to Myrtle Beach we heard about the many activities that were offered for kids with Autism. Brady had a chance to go see things and do activities that he had never done before. I also learned about the training the Champion Autism Network, also known as CAN, does for resorts and hotels to offer the chance for other families to visit Myrtle Beach. This was the same time I was trying to educate my own company on how we can better serve families and children in the autism community. I believe it is so important for the family bonding and togetherness. CAN provides that opportunity by working with businesses and resorts. There is so much that can be done in our area and we have the opportunity to assist other communities to help them learn and develop their own programs with businesses. CAN can truly make a big difference in so many lives.

    Episode #79 Royal Ball Run Happening Oct 10th at 10AM

    Featured This Episode #79: Interview with Jen Hartmann with Royal Ball Run http://www.royalballrun.com/  

    MAKING A ROYAL DIFFERENCE
    The inspiration for the Royal Ball Run for Autism organization stems from the now 1 in 59 children who are diagnosed with autism each year. We will be running to celebrate their achievements, their courage, and their future!

    Our goal is to increase awareness of autism and to support (and celebrate!) families and children touched by autism. Proceeds from the Royal Ball Run for Autism support local programs dedicated to autism treatment and awareness.

    In our first nine years, the Royal Ball Run for Autism has invested more than $230,000 in local autism programs thanks to the tremendous support of our participants, partners and sponsors. In addition to local autism programs, Royal Ball Run for Autism has developed a Quad City area autism resource guide, The Royal Guide. Click here to view http://theroyalguide.org/

    The Royal Guide

    NEW RACE DATE:
    10/10 at 10am for our 10th Anniversary!
    Announcing a special 10th Anniversary date with hopes we can host you all safely — and with fewer restrictions due to Covid than we might have during our traditional month of June. Registration and Course info here. We’ll also be honoring one of our founding members and our Royal Ball Run King, Scott Holtan, by naming this year’s race the Scott Holtan Royal Ball Run for Autism. Scott tragically passed away earlier this year due to Covid. The entire Royal Ball Run family will be celebrating his life and his legacy in all we do.
