About Walk for autism

Step towards understanding and acceptance this May.

Did you know? Because the world is not autism-friendly, 70% of Autistic people in Australia experience mental health issues. By stepping up and walking 7k steps a day this May, you will be helping initiate positive change so those on the autism spectrum feel accepted and understood.

Studies suggest that walking benefits both physical health and emotional wellbeing, and this year, we want you to Walk for autism YOUR way.

Whether you choose to walk 7k steps a day for a week, a fortnight, or the entire month of May, the funds you raise will help support Autistic Australians and their families at all life stages.

Go solo, or get your friends, family and colleagues on board and step it out together in a team. The choice is yours!

To make it extra fun we’ve got a range of fundraising reward prizes and badges up for grabs including our iconic Walk for autism T-Shirt, the chance to win a $1000 shopping voucher and a Life’s An Adventure walking tour for two people, plus more!

Join the ranks of our super fundraisers for an exclusive membership in the Walker for Fame VIP Club, amongst other benefits you’ll unlock access to our limited and converted Aspect Village Tote!

By taking part in Walk for autism, you will help provide the best opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.
