THE STORY:

Eddie & I started running several months ago to just get in shape and be healthy.  When I saw the email that came from TACA about running the O.C. Marathon it just spoke to me.  I convinced Eddie that this would give us something to work towards.  As you already know we have 3 children.  Both of our sons live with Autism daily.  Although, Autism has shaped the way we live today it doesn't define who our boys are.  They are very funny and have great personalities.  Therapies and medical bills have been a huge financial strain on our family.  If we can help even one child recieve a benefit through our fundraising efforts then, we have achieved a milestone 

Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism

Eddie-Moe and Marlene, you are an inspiration and role model for many people. Please continue your generous and selfless efforts for Autism. Eddie-moe, not sure if those ankles can hold up for 13 miles. May want to get some ankle braces just in case :-) 6 years ago

I have never met two parents who worked harder for or were more loving to their autistic children. As a marathoner myself, I know you are in it for the long haul. Keep up the important work and remember that the hardest distance in running a half is 5 1/2 inches, the space between your ears. PS-Clement and I loved the picture of your family. 6 years ago
