My Story

I am Callen's mum and I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Autism Spectrum Australia. Running 10kms is not easy for me but it is a lot easier than what Callen has to do every day just to try and communicate what he needs. We know he sees the world differently to us but he can't explain it to us yet. So each day we have to work hard to help him navigate his way through our world and help him let us into his world. Running Blackmores is a way I can show him that we will keep working hard for him. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Autism Spectrum Australia create the world we want to see.

About my team: Callen's Crew

Callen's Crew is raising much needed funds for Autism Spectrum Australia by participating in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017. Our family is at the beginning of our journey with this organisation and Autism itself. Already we understand how important research, awareness and support are for people with Autism and their families. Callen works really hard everyday to do all the things we ask of him. We are running Blackmores bridge run to raise money for Autism Awareness so they can help others understand how wonderfully unique these people are and all the amazing things they have to offer the world. The work of Autism Spectrum Australia is really important and we want to do what we can to support them. Thank you for your generosity and support!

About my cause: Autism Spectrum Australia

Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia’s largest service provider for people on the autism spectrum. Our specialised, evidence informed schools program is the largest in the world, with additional services that include information and advice, diagnostic assessments, behaviour support, parent and family support, and adult programs. We share evidence-informed Aspect practice and applied research nationwide.

Autism lasts a lifetime and affects about one in 100 Australians, or 230,000 people. The word 'spectrum' reflects the different challenges that people on the autism spectrum face and the degree to which they may be affected.

Our services provide people on the autism spectrum with the opportunity to realise their unique potential, as well as providing much needed support to their families, carers, friends and colleagues. Our vision is to provide the best possible opportunities for people on the spectrum.
