Running For Scottish Autism!

HOME > Uncategorised > Running For Scottish Autism!

On Sunday the 29th of September, our offices will be taking part in the Great Scottish Run to raise money for Scottish Autism and, frankly, to lose some much-needed weight! It is no secret that web development is not the most physically demanding job in the world. Other than the walk next door to Joe’s for coffees and rolls, there isn’t much need for movement.

In a moment of charitable madness we agreed to run this 10k, however, we are all now starting to wonder if we have given ourselves enough time to get in shape for the race! Nevertheless, for better or for worse, it is too late to back out now; we just hope that by the time we realise our mistake we will be too far in to walk back!

Why Scottish Autism?

This charity is close to our hearts as Damian, one of our fantastic designers, has a young son called Niall who is on the autism spectrum. Niall has received significant amounts of support from various organisations which have helped to make life much easier for both him and his family, granting him many opportunities which simply would not have been possible without charitable support. This is our attempt to give something back.

Why Scottish Autism?

What Help Scottish Autism Provide?

Scottish Autism is a fantastic charitable organisation which is committed to providing a better quality of life for people with autism. In their own words:

“We exist to help those diagnosed with autism to lead full and enriched lives and become valuable members of the community they live in.”

They also provide awareness programmes to both parents and the broader community, educating people about the complex autism spectrum. Damian himself, along with hundreds of other parents, have benefitted from these educational classes. However, all of this is dependent upon funding, and Scottish Autism does not have the resources available to it that other larger charities do.

How Can You Support Us?

How Can You Support Us?

You can support us at the Great Scottish Run in a few different ways. First of all, you can turn up to cheer us on from the sidelines, and perhaps to give us directions if we start to go off course {or attempt to escape…)!

However, what will really make the difference in terms of helping autistic children around the country is to donate. People with autism have a lot to offer the world, but they require support which costs money.

Here is the link to our Just Giving page, and we would massively appreciate any donations, however big or small, to put in the hands of such a fantastic organisation.
