National Autistic Society's Train Walk

Posted 17 March 2011 10:32 by martin


The National Autistic Society are set to get walking in order to raise money.

The charity will be running a number of Train Walks, which are Thomas & Friends-themed family sponsored walks. The National Autistic Society hope that over 100 walks will be taking place across the country.

You can find out all about the walks on the National Autistic Society's dedicated website And if you're interested in organising a Train Walk in your area, you can do so by ordering a Train Walk pack here. Details of the walks will also be appearing on our events listing pages as dates and locations are finalised, so keep your eyes peeled there as well!

So why not get involved with a Train Walk in your area; it's a great opportunity for families to get together, get active and raise money for a great cause.

Autism is a serious, lifelong and disabling condition. People with autism can find it incredibly hard to make sense of the world. Everyday life can be confusing, meaningless or even frightening. Over 500,000 people in the UK have autism. Together with their families they make up over two million people whose lives are touched by autism every day. Despite this, autism is still relatively unknown and misunderstood. Which means that many of these two million people get nothing like the level of help, support and understanding they need. Together we are going to change this, and Train Walks are one way of making a difference.
