Walk creates autism awareness

HUNDREDS of supporters participated in the Autism Awareness Run/Walk hosted at the South African Army Natal Mounted Rifles regiment on Saturday, 21 April.

The 5km walk/run and 10km run took place along the beachfront promenade, and the objective of this event was to promote awareness of those with Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who are part of families and communities, and to drive the message to promote inclusion in schools as well as access to services for those with ASD.

Caz Collins, the director of Breakthrough Interventions SA, was pleased with the turnout, saying: “We were delighted to have Musgrave Shopping Centre on board as a main sponsor, and through their support, we actually doubled our entries, and had to, in fact, close entries well ahead of the registration cut-off date”.
