Thank you!

Hi Everyone,
We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for donating to this wonderful fundraiser. We are so excited to start our walk on the 21st March and have been training our little butt’s off to get ready! 
The support and love we have received has been out of this world! We are so touched to see how many people (some we have never even met before!) have contacted us, shared our story and donated. We will continue updating our page with walk updates and pics. We will also be sharing more of Manaia’s story. What he has overcome in 4 short years is incredible and we hope it inspires and helps others.
Thank you again from our entire family. We love you all x

Support us & our walk for autism

We’ve stepped up to walk for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind.

As you are most likely aware, our superstar of a son, Manaia was diagnosed with Autism in January 2019. At the time, we thought our world had come crashing down, and to be fair our life has its challenges...but we wouldn't be the people and the family we are if this wasn't our path. We have met some of the most inspiring and wonderful people on our journey. Manaia has taught us so much in the 4 short years he has been on this earth. The most important being that everyone is different and everyone deserves love, respect and inclusion.

We will be challenging ourselves to walk 10,000 steps a day for 8 days while raising much needed funds to support people like Manaia, on the autism spectrum.

An estimated 1 in every 70 people is on the autism spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians.

People on the autism spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.

By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.

Help make our steps count and show your support by donating today.

Thank you for your donation, no matter the amount, your love and support means the world to us.

Love, The Savage Family x
