Step up (literally) and make a difference in the lives of children with autism!

Champions Challenge is the brainchild of a group of mates, in conjunction with AEIOU Foundation, who wanted to challenge themselves and make a real and life-changing difference to children with autism. 

Champions Challenge will see teams of four undertake a tough physical and mental challenge, as they hike 42km, through rugged terrain, from Mt Glorious to The Gap. 100% of the funds raised will help AEIOU transform the future of children diagnosed with autism. 

Autism is not rare. One in 100 Australians are diagnosed with autism, and this is one of the most common disabilities affecting young children in our country. The intensive early intervention program that is offered by AEIOU provides children with vital independence skills and prepares them for their next learning environment. The majority of children who receive early intervention will graduate from AEIOU and attend mainstream schools. 

With your help, AEIOU will be one step closer to achieving our goal of giving every Australian child with autism access to the AEIOU intensive early intervention program. Together, we can create a lifetime of opportunities. 

The registration fee for a team of 4 is $1,200 and teams have a minimum fundraising commitment of $1,000 ($250 per team member).

Register today, create your team and grab your hiking shoes and trekking poles out of the cupboard. With your help, we can change the future for children with autism, and their families.
