Mary and Ray take on the TT Challenge for Walk for Autism

Posted on 16th May 2019

Isle of Man couple take on the old TT course to raise funds for autism

Mary and Ray Carbery from Marown on the Isle of Man strapped on their walking boots and took on a number of walking challenges during World Autism Awareness Week as part of the Walk for Autism UK & Ireland campaign.

The couple raised more than £350 and we were delighted that they shared photos with us from a number of these walks including the old TT course and following the historic old steam railway line from Douglas to Peel on “The Heritage Trail”. 

Mr & Mrs Carberry were inspired to Walk for Autism as their son has been supported by Autism Initiatives for many years, so they understand more than most the positive impact that spreading autism awareness and raising funds can have.

Ed Green Community Fundraiser for Autism Initiatives said:  "We would like to thank Mary, Ray and all those who generously sponsored them for their amazing effort and support.  Walk for Autism helps autistic people and their families across the UK & Ireland and every penny raised will help change lives positively.  We will be asking people to Walk for Autism again in 2020 and would welcome more people from the Isle of Man to follow Mr & Mrs Carberry's lead and step up to the challenge."
