Walk For Autism 2021

For the last 3 years, I’ve taken part in Walk For Autism and raised money to help millions of people across the U.K so the charity Walk For Autism can continue supporting everyone who may need their support who has autism.

About Walk For Autism

“Walk for Autism is a fundraising challenge to walk 10,000 steps every day from 26 March to 2 April.  That’s 8 walking days in total.

It’s a virtual event which means you can do it at your own pace, in your own time. There are no organised walks to attend.

Challenge yourself to walk 10,000 steps a day for 8 days, from Friday 26 March to Friday 2 April 2021, while raising much-needed funds to support autistic people in the UK.

Go solo, or walk with other members of your household.

Register now to join likeminded people and to show how much you care about autism.

As part of the registration process, you will create your online fundraising page.  Simply follow the very straightforward instructions, upload a photo and tell your story and ta-dah!  Your fundraising page will be ready to share.

Counting your steps

Use your phone to count your steps or search ‘free steps tracker’ in your app store.  Alternatively, both Fitbit and Strava connect to your fundraising page.

If these options don’t suit you, give us a call and our Walking Buddies will send you a pedometer – we’ve only got a limited amount so it will be first-come-first-served and please note they can be temperamental.  We hope we have everything covered so whoever you are and wherever you are in the UK you can take part easily!

By taking part in Walk for Autism, you will help provide the best opportunities for autistic people to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them. What are you waiting for?”

Let’s do this!

What Is Autism

Autism is a long life disability that affects people like myself to communicate and interact with the world and everyday life.

There are around 700,000 adults and children in the UK who have autism and like all the people who have autism we all have our own strength and challenges but everyone who has autism finds it hard to communicate and interact with other people.

People with autism can also sometimes take longer to understand and progress information and not understanding the facial expression, body language and things you may class as a joke. People like myself who have autism also engage in repetitive behaviour doing and thinking the same thing over and over again we can also find unexpected changes very stressful and it can also sometimes take us a while to understand the following changes and take us a while to adjust to the changes. Some people who have autism don’t like smells, bright lights, loads of sounds, big groups of people, being touched, having our routine or things moved very stressful and can sometimes send people who have autism into a meltdown or they might shut everything out around them. People like myself are still human and we still have feelings like you and everyone else we just need more time and support time to time. © – This text belongs to jackdeyes.com
