We Made It

Through my work in vision I am witness constantly to the challenges those living with Autism face; both in terms of day to day function and with respect to exclusion, largely through ignorance or poor awareness of others
Camryn my first inspiration I have known since she was a baby and have watched her develop into a gorgeous young woman with the amazing support of her family and timely early
Hudson the son of a gorgeous woman I train with Kathryn Calpis is my second inspiration 
Kathryn is a humble human advocating for Autism through conversations and in her actions to support Hudson
I am so proud to be part of Team Hornet 🐝 for the second time, running for a great cause

I'm running for....Camryn and Hudson

I’m running for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind.

In my work I have the good fortune to work with children and adults on the autism spectrum. My life is constantly enriched by these interactions and i am running with gratitude for this opportunity to be part of something so wonderful

I've set my challenge and I'll be running from Sunday 30 October to 6 November while raising much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.

An estimated 1 in every 70 people is on the spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians.

People on the spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.

By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.

Help make my run challenge count and show your support by donating today!
