Many fundraising events in the UK have been postponed or cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Whilst we are all hopeful many of these events will go ahead at a later date Autism Initiatives like many other charities across the UK have been left struggling to meet fundraising targets. We need your support now more than ever!

The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, which raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.

A national initiative called The 2.6 Challenge has been launched by Just Giving to help all charities at these challenging times …

Could you be a Home Hero?

How can I get involved?

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends.

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes to take on the 2.6 Challenge for Autism Initiatives which launches on the 26th April. Because autistic people and their families need extra expert support and services more than ever in these challenging times!
