In July 2011 my Dad and three colleagues walked the Kokoda track. As well as being a fantastic physical challenge they were raising awareness for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders. This is pretty important to Kirsty and I as our son, Gilbert, has autism and our eldest daughter, Matilda, has aspergers. Dad and the guys did raise awareness, and $2700 for Aspect, which was Gilbert’s school at the time. Below are some of Dad’s photos from the trek.
Dad and the guys are embarking on a new adventure next month, down to Tassie to walk the South Coast Track. Please check out his blog and some of the links at Step Up For Autism.
I’m linking up with My Little Drummer Boys, Project Alicia, Moms Bookshelf and Twinkle In My Eye for Wordless Wednesday.
