The AKO walking running cycling challenge!

Times are tough for everyone at the moment and here at AKO we have been having some brainstorming meetings to see what we can do to fund-raise for our small charity with a big heart!

So the AKO team are going to be walking, running and cycling throughout the whole of May to see exactly how far we can get in the world in miles and each week we will publish our collective miles as a team and then announce on June 1st how many miles we have achieved and where we got to in the world !

Please sponsor us whatever you can and also on your message just for fun pick a place in the world you think we can reach with our miles:

About Autism’s Got Talent

Autism’s Got Talent is a red carpet event and a celebration of everyone on the autism spectrum, everyone in attendance will be guests of honour and treated like VIPs. We love to showcase a huge variety of performers that are out there and this year is no exception.

Acts will be travelling from all over the world, which not only proves how popular Autism’s Got Talent is becoming, but how important a platform such as this one is to those on the spectrum.

“It is extremely important that people with autism have an outlet. Autism’s Got Talent is a safe and secure environment where those who want to, can express and perform without fear of being judged or criticised. Autism’s Got Talent is one of a kind, and is extremely poignant to those with autism and their families. Those involved can have fun, do what they love, make friends and be themselves, and have one night which is all about them.”

We Invite You to Join Us in Celebrating and Embracing Neurodiverse Strengths

 

About this Event

As part of Neurodiversity Celebration Week, we invite you to join us at the first ever Neurodiversity Youth Summit.

Much too often, schools focus on what SEN students can’t do, instead of recognising and celebrating the many strengths and positive aspects of being neurodiverse. This can be very demoralising and can make us loose sight of our talents and strengths.

We are the dreamers. The pioneers. The change-makers. The future business leaders. We are the trailbalzers, The adventures. The discovers. We are the Einsteins and Bransons of tomorrow.

If you are a secondary school student, please join us in a unique evening that will focus on empowering neurodivergent youth to harness their potential, change the way they perceive themselves and view their future as being full of promise and exciting opportunities.
