Autism Spectrum Australia

Walk for autism

Thank you to everyone who joined us during our first Walk for autism.  We logged 24,186,017 steps around Australia and celebrated World Autism Awareness Day!

 

Walk for autism

Our mission was to go colourful and celebrate the spectrum by joining together to Walk foautism.

Walk for autism

Thank you to all the walkers who joined us from World Autism Awareness Day on April 2 and stepped out for 7 days to celebrate people on the autism spectrum and raise awareness across Australia! Its still not too late to join us though - you can sign up anytime you like and pick your own 7 days to help us towards our goal.  During the first week of walking, we smashed 19 million steps which took us around the whole of Highway 1 with a detour to Hobart but we're aiming to clock up 23 million more across the year to take us to every corner, bay, and beach on the Australian coast!  With your help we will be able to celebrate the spectrum and raise awareness and money to support those on the autism spectrum. 

We will let you know when we launch Walk for autism 2017 but in the meantime if you have any questions please email fundraising@autismspectrum.org.au or call 1800 288 476
