Belfast’s Victoria Park will be glowing bright on Friday, October 19, as Autism NI hold their Glow Walk. Families are encouraged to ‘get their glow on’ and don their neon fancy dress for autism.
Autism NI CEO Kerry Boyd said: “October can be a dull month, but we’re excited to be lighting up the night with our Glow Walk, which is to ‘highlight’ autism as a hidden disability and raise awareness in the wider community.
“The 5K walk will begin at 6.30pm in Victoria Park and we are asking local families to support the charity by taking part and pledging to raise £75 per family. This will be a fun evening for all ages and a chance to glow bright for autism.
“Sign up for our first ever Glow Walk and you’ll be supporting a very worthy cause while having a lot of fun. For free registration and to receive your glow pack, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 028 9040 1729.”
All funds raised from the Glow Walk will support Autism NI’s vital Helpline service which is invaluable to local families, individuals and professionals and supports over 4,000 individuals every year. Events like this are vital in the work the charity carries out and helps provide life-changing services and support to the 30,000 families living with the daily challenges of autism in Northern Ireland.
