THE STORY:

MUDDIN FOR MATTY! MattyRy is one in a million. But for diagnosis sake he's 1 in 68. 1 in 68 kids today are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Coming up on the anniversary of his diagnosis always has me feeling all the feels. It's fucking shitty and scary to sit in a doctors office and be told that your kid is different and who knows what the future holds for him ??‍♀️ not sure...here's a list of support groups, we'll grab your co-pay at the front desk ???? But it's also the friggin BEST 3 letters that ever happened to him because it opened the door for him to get the help and services he needs and deserves. He's grown so. Damn. Much. Since that day and we are so proud. For the past 3 years I've run the mudderella in support of the charity Futures without violence. Awesome charity that supports women and children of abuse situations. ? No secret that this run has been my THING the past 3 years. I'm obsessed. Like literally made My bridesmaids run 6 miles in the blistering cold and rain and call it a bachelorette party obsessed. This year unfortunately, or maybe fortunately because it's pushing me to try something new, Mudderella has been phased out and replaced with the Toughmudder half. Ok cool! Sounds a little more intense that Mudderella ? but I'm down for a challenge. I still wanted to run for a charity though...if I'm getting friggin electrocuted it's damn well gonna be for a good cause ⚡️? So I went to the toughmudder website to see what charities they support. Unfortunately FWV wasn't on the list. But something super special was. So this one is being run for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR), for Matty, for Cole, for Julia, and for all the other 1in68ers.(who are actually ALL one in a million) Will it be a challenge? Sure. But nothing like the challenges these kids/adults face on a daily basis ? thanks to my boy for always inspiring me to be and do better ? #autismawareness #autismacceptance #untilallthepiecesfit
