Eden Autism Services has been a leader in providing support to individuals with autism and their families for over 40 years.
Jerry Fennelly’s dedication to the autism community led him to initiate the Eden Autism 5K & Fun Run/Walk 20 years ago. This event aimed to raise awareness of the organization within the local community and establish a recurring source of fundraising support. Fennelly’s commitment extended beyond Eden, as he has also assisted other organizations in Mercer County, such as Casa New Jersey, the Princeton YMCA, and the Parkinson’s Alliance, in organizing 5K races.
Melinda McAleer, the Chief Development Officer of Eden Autism Services, praised Fennelly for his unwavering support, stating, “Jerry has given so much of his time and energy to organizations just like ours across our region.” In honor of his two decades of tireless dedication, Fennelly was recognized at the 20th anniversary of the Eden Autism 5K & Fun Run/Walk.
Expressing his gratitude, Jerry Fennelly emphasized the importance of making a positive impact on local communities. He described the Eden Autism Foundation as a tremendous organization and expressed his honor in supporting their goals and initiatives through such a enjoyable event.
