My Story

I am running in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Autism Spectrum Australia. Their work is really important, they support people on the autism spectrum and their families in many ways. I want to do what I can to help, especially as ASD has affected my family and so I know first hand how important the work of ASPECT is. People on the Autism spectrum require lots of support and understanding - and this can put a lot of financial and emotional pressure on families. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference, no matter how small 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. One where difference is understood and celebrated.

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.
