Autism Anglia’s 21 Challenge – conquer 2021 your way!

Take on a challenge for 2021 to support Autism Anglia and become an Autism Hero!

Simply take on a challenge, personal to you, that involves the number 21 (or 201 / 2021 etc). This could be to run/walk/cycle 21 miles or learn to say hello in 21 different languages. See our list of ideas below for more inspiration.

Set up a fundraising page and share with your family and friends to let them know what challenge you are going to take on and raise as much money as you can. All funds raised will support our work in enhancing the lives of autistic people.
