Merseyside charity Autism Together encourages people to ‘Get Active For Autism’ this April

A Merseyside charity specialising in autism support, is asking the public to get out and get active to help raise funds and awareness for people with autism this spring.

Autism Together Awareness Month is a 30-day celebration of autism taking place throughout April, continuing the positivity and interest created each year by the events of World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd.

This year, the Wirral-based charity is asking people young and old to help raise awareness and acceptance of autism by either running or walking 53 miles during April, with a target of raising at least £53 for the people the charity supports.

Autism Together, which has a head office in Bromborough and operations across Wirral, West Cheshire and North Wales, supports people of all ages on the autism spectrum, with around 1,000 staff providing residential, supported living and day services to over 400 individuals.

Sue Stubbs, Autism Together’s CEO, said:

“This April we’re asking people to Get Active For Autism by walking or running 53 miles in aid of autism awareness and support.

“Why 53? Because our organisation started back in 1968 and this year will be our 53rd birthday.

“We hope people across the region will get involved to help increase autism awareness and acceptance in their schools, communities and places of work.”
