2018 WNC Run/Walk for Autism

Don't Mess With Tess

Thank you for supporting the WNC Run/Walk for Autism...and thank you for being on Tessa Blue’s Team! It’s going to be fun, sweaty and a good, old fashioned adventure!!  If you are too far away to join us as we merrily jaunt down the trail, please consider a donation to make it all worthwhile.

Many of you know that I have been knee-deep in the Autism Community since my mother offered my babysitting services to a young boy in my hometown of Wautoma, Wisconsin.  Since then I have found myself all over the country embarking on a whimsical adventure of commitment to caring for, and learning from, those on the Autism Spectrum...from the littles to the adults, it has been a whirlwind of laughs, tears, joy and sorrow...and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

And then along came My Blue.  Tessa Blue is a joyful, wild spirited and charming First Grader. Every day she shows me the promise in this crazy world and I am a better mama because of her. Tessa Blue has autism and though the hurdles we are faced with daily can challenge the toughest of spirits I know that the two of us are two peas in a pod...We are family and we are in this together.  

I hope many, if not most, of you would love to rally with me for the race and show your support by joining our little team.  A few clicks and you’ll be all set! 

Wish us well...or see you there;)
