Walks

Walking is a fantastic activity that everyone can enjoy no matter what your level of ability. Walking events are also a really simple way to fundraise for Autism Initiatives.

Fright Hike

This Halloween take part in Fright Hike, our most scary fundraising event this year! Visit Sherwood Forest and challenge yourself to a hellish 30km hike while raising funds for people with autism.

Best known for the legend of Robin Hood, this world famous forest is also said to be the home to various spirits and legends in England. With its medieval-era atmosphere, and crumbling haunted ruins of a monastery this location will run riots in your mind. Tie your trekking boot laces tight, this will be one monster of a trek!

The cost of this event is £39 and you must raise a further £160 for Autism Initiatives. To find out more about the terms and conditions and fundraising details please see the Fright Hike brochure. Or visit www.fright-hike.com

Places are selling fast. Register your place here now. 

If you have any questions about taking part please contact our community fundraiser on 0151 932 2213 or email edna.green@autisminitiatives.org.


Active for Autism Andrew and Jason on a WalkCase study – West Highland Way

Jason, who works as a support worker for Autism Initiatives in West Lothian, had always wanted to take on the West Highland Way, one of the UKs most famous walks. So when he decided to walk over 100 miles from Glasgow to Fort William he chose to support Autism Initiatives.

“Its been a long term ambition of mine to walk the West Highland Way, and I though that it would be a great opportunity to raise awareness and support for Autism Initiatives.”

Jason thought the worst thing would be the midges and stocked up on lots of mosquito repellent but at the end of his 5 day hike he had to make a short stop at A&E for blister treatment! However Jason says it was certainly worth it as he raised over £1000 for our West Lothian autism services.

Jason was joined for the first day of the hike by Andrew, an Edinburgh service user whom Jason has supported in the past. It was a reversal of roles with Andrew, and his dad Stephen supporting Jason for a change.

If you would like to organise a walk to support any of our autism services then get in touch to receive fundraising support and help organising and promoting your event.
