1 mile an hour, On the hour, For 26 hours

After months of uncertainty and endlessbattles, we are finally on the road to getting the answers we have been constantly fighting for. Our son Reuben has been diagnosed with ASD autism, this has hit our family hard but we want to raise not only awareness but funds for such a great supportive charity.

We have explained this to our other children that Reuben has a form of superpower now and he sees the world in a special way.
As Reubens parents we’ve decided to raise money for this wonderful charity by...
running 1 mile on the hour every hour for 26 hours which equals A MARATHON!
We have also decided we will do this in superhero costumes.

With the amount of uncertainty this has caused we have both suffered in and out of anxiety and low points and we have found that exercise helps us the most this is why we have decided to use this as our power to raise as much awareness & money as we can. 

We will be doing this run on 
SATURDAY 27th MARCH 2021!!!

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of CHILD AUTISM UK and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
