Walk For Autism 2017
Walk For Autism is an annual charity walk to raise money and awareness for Autism Aware UK set up and organised by AAUK trustee Joanne Burrows
Set up in 2012 Jo worked in conjunction with Autism Aware UK to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society and on the 1st of September 2012 Jo and her fantastic team walked 50k (a kilometre for every year the National Autistic Society has be established) from Alton Towers to Queen’s Park, Longton and back.
The second annual walk for autism was a 11 mile walk around Dimmingsdale, Nr Alton in Staffordshire held on the 28th September 2013 with proceeds donated directly to Autism Aware UK after they had received charity status.
2014 saw the annual walk move to its present home, Ladybower reservoir. This stunning setting offers 3 distances to walk, which offers a challenge for all ages and abilities an is also a great day out for all the family.
