My Story

Hi friends, I have embarked on a long and perilous journey to running the Blackmores Sydney Marathon. I am using this as an opportunity to raise awareness (and hopefully funds) for Autism Spectrum Australia. Having spent time volunteering in child care centres and charities that provide services for individuals affected with autism, I have been exposed to the difficulties that these people face in their daily lives and the social isolation some of them endure. Autism Spectrum Australia have done some amazing work over the years through evidence informed treatment and early prevention services. I encourage you all to check out their website for more information and donate to this page to support them in their future endeavours

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.
