Walk for Autism Events

In light of the COVID-19 crisis and official guidance from the UK and Scottish Governments’, our annual Walk for Autism events have been postponed until 2021. Anyone that has already purchased places for 2020's events will be able to join us then, when come together and Walk for Autism next year.


While we are unable to Walk for Autism together this year, you can still support us with an awareness-raising walk of your own.
 

Get active in the great outdoors by walking 5K in your local area, or perhaps gather a team of friends or colleagues and walk 5K each for 5 days. Get ready for your challenge by taking the steps below:

 

  • Visit our online shop to purchase our supporter t-shirt to raise awareness while taking part in your 5K walk.
  • Get a Covid-19 Alert Card if you or someone you care for is autistic.  This can be shown, if necessary, when outdoors for exercise purposes. Download here or get a digital Covid-19 Alert Card for your smartphone.
  • Create a JustGiving page to share across your social media channels and ask friends and family to sponsor you.
  • Share your fundraising photos with us by tagging us on social media and use #5KWalkforAutism. You can also email us your photos if you wish.

Wallace Wanders 

Get one of our new Wallace Wanders packs - a toolkit for teachers to create a fun way of engaging pupils in a fundraising walk for Scottish Autism.  

The pack includes an introduction to Scottish Autism and offers suggestions on ways to get the whole school involved in walking for autism. By taking on a Wallace Wanders event, this will promote exercise amongst pupils and gives the opportunity to introduce relevant discussions in the classroom.

Not only this but it will encourage children to participate in fundraising for a great cause, while making it an enjoyable and memorable experience for all involved.

 

If you would like to be sent a free information pack, please email fundraising@scottishautism.org or call 01259 720044.

What’s next? - Once your school has registered to take part in Wallace Wanders, we will send you a selection of goodies including stickers and a Wallace badge, along with some downloadable resources to make your fundraising journey as effortless as possible!
