Get involved as an Individual or Team

Getting involved is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4!

Getting involved in Walk for autism is the perfect way to help us step closer to our goal of a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind. This is a movement made up of many actions and many people.

You can take part on your own, in a team or as a team leader. Whatever you choose, we can’t wait to welcome you to the Walk for autism community in 2022!

Register, create your fundraising page and personalise with your photo, story and goals.

Step 3:

Raise much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.

Step 4:

Walk 10,000 steps a day from Sunday 27 March to Sunday 3 April 2022.

Kick-start your fundraising

Make sure you kick-start your fundraising by making a donation to yourself. This will show everyone just how serious you are about changing lives and will encourage others to make a donation too.

Getting started as an Individual

Taking on the Walk for autism solo? Great work – we know you can do it!

All you need to do is Register as an Individual and kick-start your fundraising by making a donation to yourself. Then personalise your fundraising page (with a photo and your story) and you will be on your way.

Once you are set-up, shout from the rooftops that you are taking on Walk for autism and ask everyone you know to make a donation to support your efforts!

To make it extra fun we’ve got a range of fundraising reward prizes and medals up for grabs including our fun personalised social tiles and iconic Walk for autism T-shirt, plus the chance to win Rebel Sports vouchers and a his & hers Garmin Vivoactive smartwatch pack valued at $1000.

Getting started as a Team Member

Taking part in a Team is a great way to have fun and get fit, while hanging out with some of your besties. Plus you will show people on the autism spectrum just how much you believe in a more inclusive world.

Register through the 'Team' registration flow and select ‘Join a Team’ and enter the Team Name. 

Kick-start your fundraising by making a donation to yourself. Then personalise your fundraising page (with a photo and your story) and you will be on your way.

Encourage your Team mates to do the same and step out together to smash your fundraising and walking goals!

Getting started as a Team Leader

Being a Team Leader is an important and rewarding role. Setting up your team while completing your personal registration is easy.

  • Register through our 'Team' registration flow.

  • Complete your personal registration details.

  • Click on ‘Create a Team’ and add your Team Name.

  • Personalise your team fundraising page with a photo and story of why you are taking part.

  • Invite your family, friends and colleague to join your Team.

Once you are set-up, it’s time to pass on your passion and motivate your teammates to raise funds from their networks so they not only smash their personal fundraising goal, but make sure you smash your team fundraising goal.

Get everyone up, out and walking together. Set your teammates walking challenges so they are trained up, fit and ready to take on 10,000 steps a day from Sunday 27 March to Sunday 3 April 2022.

Above all, remember to have fun and cheer your team on – every dollar raised and every step taken will get us closer to a better, fairer world for people on the autism spectrum.
