My story

[p]Many autistic children keep their lives rigid and routine-led to help them feel in control of a world they do not understand. Families have suffered greatly during the pandemic because their autistic children/young people often with very little speech and learning disabilities do not understand why they cannot stick to the routines that help them feel safe. If you have complex autism - and will never understand what a virus is - you think it's your mum, dad or caregiver stopping you doing all your usual activities. Can you imagine the impact of this on parents (the majority of them single) for months on end trying to cope with their children's pain and lack of understanding every single day alone with no break - often sleep deprived? Many neurotypical people will have mental health issues due to Covid but at least they know why it's happening and what a virus is. And still it continues.[/p][p]I will be thinking of a particular person as I run/walk/stagger. Many of you may have read about the despair of a friend Olga Voronina/Freeman who loved her autistic son SO dearly but was taken to the brink during Covid. I will be thinking of Olga, my Fred and all of the families who've suffered so much during Covid - and continue to do so. Every donation goes straight to the families via The Fred Foundation www.thefredfoundation.org and nothing is swallowed up by admin costs. Not many charities can say that.[/p][p] I have an injury (ooh me back!) but I will do the virtual 13 mile run locally on 11 April. Anything you can spare even if it's only a few pounds will be gratefully received. Thank you so much for reading. XXXXX [/p]
