Some of you may know that our boys, Anton and Lucien, are autistic. They are wonderful little boys, but they do have their challenges. Thanks to organizations like Autism Speaks, our boys have access to programs, services, and support that help them in their day to day lives.  Autism Speaks also works to increase understanding, acceptance and inclusion of people with autism spectrum disorder, advance innovative research, and make connections to lifelong services and supports for the autism community.

The Montreal Walk will take place on June 12, 2022.  A portion of all Tarantula Canada sales through June 12 will be donated to Autism Speaks. Please support Team Tarantula Canada and help us reach our fundraising goals.
