Amy’s set to Walk for Autism

This spring, our operations manager Amy Clow will be taking on a fundraising challenge to help children and young people with autism.

Amy looks after our Komplex Care team and clients in the south. And she knows just how much the funds will mean to families who benefit, as her son Felix has autism.

She’ll be taking part in the Walk for Autism, aiming to walk at least 10,000 steps every day between 26th March and 2nd April.

Her older son Teddy, who is nine, will be walking alongside her. And four-year-old Felix will also be completing some of the challenge with them.

Amy says:

“I want to encourage as many people as possible to talk part in the Walk for Autism. It’s for an amazing cause, and you can walk anywhere at any time during the week. Some people choose to fundraise in other ways too, such as hosting a cake sale at their office.

“I’d also like as many people as possible to share information about the event. Most people have heard of autism, but they may not fully understand the challenges faced by families. The Autism Initiatives Group gives people that information so they can support children and their loved ones.

About Walk for Autism

Autism Initiatives Group is the registered charity which organises the Walk for Autism every year. The charity’s overarching aim is ‘to step closer to a world where every person on the autism spectrum has the support they need to thrive, every opportunity to fulfil their potential and a supportive inclusive community to live in.’

The eight-day challenge ends on 2nd April which is also World Autism Acceptance Day.

Anyone wishing to talk part can register here, or you can find out more information and follow the progress of the fundraisers on the Walk for Autism Facebook page.
