On June 1st 2014 I am running the Walled City Marathon in Derry Northern Ireland in aid of the local Charity COS-Circle of Support for Autism Families. My Son Matthew has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and struggles daily with everyday tasks. COS have been an immense help throughout the past year for our Family. COS was formed in June 2011 and provides guidance and assistance to families affected by autism. COS also arranges activities that can be enjoyed by all of the family including ASD friendly cinema trips, Bowling club and Sensory swimming and Active ASD.
These are all adjusted to cater for the sensory needs of our kids who otherwise couldn't experience these activities. I'm fundraising to ensure that activities such as these and others can continue for kids like Matthew and also to ensure the upcoming summer scheme can go ahead as planned.
The break in routine during holiday time can be extremely distressing for a child with Autism and COS have a packed programme planned for the summer so our kids are kept active and engaged during their summer break. They ensure that the whole family can be involved in outings together by tailoring them to the needs of our ASD kids.  Raising funds are the only way this charity can continue to operate and help families affected by autism.  The charity is continually growing and further fund raising can help guarantee more families affected by autism are given the necessary help they and their children need.  For more information on COS-Circle of Support, please visit our website.
