Alena Lemesh | Team Maxim

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

My son Maxim is autistic. A few years ago, we learned about Can Do Canines and how their assistance dogs provide security and peace of mind to autistic kids and their families. We got on their waiting list and have been waiting for 3 years. We are now closer than ever before to receiving an assistance dog (we got a letter of approval from CanDoCanines); however, it still may take another year or longer until the right dog is identified and trained…

I need your help to shorten that wait for my and other families. I am asking you to join Can Do Canines and my family in our efforts to raise much-needed funds to place more assistance dogs with people who need them! You can do so by sponsoring Team Maxim and/or by walking with our team. Thank you for your generosity!



p.s. the dogs you see with Maxim on the photos are therapy dogs he meets at Therapy Junction; the smile on his face and excitement about the dogs are priceless:)

Funds raised: $1,020 of $1,000
