Autism Now Affects 1 in 50 children (1 in 31 boys).

Calling all RUNNERS and anyone else willing to try a 5 mile mud run! First-timers are more than welcome. It's going to be FUN!

The Wisconsin chapter of Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is putting together a team for the Madison Mud Run. It's on Sunday, May 19. So far, we have 84 runners signed up and we have filled Wave 12! Join Team TACA, Wave 13 at 11:06 am. Can you help our team reach 100 runners?

The organizers have been generous enough to give us a $20 discount off registration. Contact Kate Whelan via Facebook or at to get the code. We also have a limited supply of very cool Team TACA wickable T-shirts available for $25.

Please ask your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to join us and/or to sponsor your efforts by making donations to this worthy cause. Small donations make a big difference. $5 and $10 go a long way.

What is TACA? TACA is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating, empowering, and supporting families affected by autism.

TACA believes in early diagnosis, intensive therapies, and medical intervention for children affected by autism. With early intervention, medical treatment unique to each person’s needs and necessary support services for families, many children can improve greatly and some can recover from their autistic symptoms.

A recent CDC survey put the number of children with autism at 1 in 50 children (1 in 31 boys). If you don't already know someone with autism, you probably soon will. That person may be someone you love.

So put on your old running shoes (you can donate them to TACA at the end of the race too – we’re doing the shoe recycling collection), and sign up for a fun time all for a good cause.

Check to register, but be sure to get your discount code from Kate before you sign up!
