DO Supports

THE AUTISM CHALLENGE WAS STARTED IN 2014 BY ERIC MURPHY (A BOY WITH ASPERGERS) AND HIS MUM JULIE. THE IDEA CAME ABOUT WHEN ERIC WAS IN THE MALL AND SEEN PEOPLE SELLING CANCER COUNCIL MERCHANDISE. HE ASKED IF WE COULD DO THAT WITH AUTISM STUFF. WE CONTACTED ASPECT AND SO BEGAN ERICS QUEST TO RAISE FUNDS FOR ASPECT. WE SOLD A LOT OF RIBBONS, SHOELACES, BOTTLES AND PENS AND ERIC WANTED TO DO MORE. WE PAINTED OUR HOUSE BLUE, DYED OUR HAIR AND ENCOURAGED MACARTHUR, VIA NEWSPAPER AND RADIO, TO "GO BLUE FOR AUTISM". ERIC WAS MOST EXCITED WHEN V8 SUPERCAR TEAM EREBUS MOTORSPORT AGREED TO PUT THE "GO bLUE FOR AUTISM" LOGO ON THEIR RACE CAR. HE EVEN THANKED BETTY AND WIL DAVISON PERSONALLY FOR THEIR SUPPORT. WE THEN APPROACHED FASTLANE KARTING, BECAUSE ERIC LOVES MOTORSPORT, AND THEY AGREED TO LET US HOST A FUNDRAISER. WE HELD A SAUSAGE SIZZLE, CAR SHOW, BURNOUTS AND A RAFFLE. FROM THIS NIGHT WE WERE ABLE TO RAISE NEARL $2500 FOR ASPECT. THIS YEAR ERIC AGAIN WANTED TO SUPPORT ASPECT AND HAS EMBRACED THEIR CAMPAIGN "AUTISM - A DIFFERENT BRILLIANT" AND IS GOING COLORFUL WITH THEM. WITH THIS CAMPAIGN WE LOOKED INTO THE COMMUNITY TO SEE WHICH CHARITIES ARE ENCOURAGING AND SUPPPORTING "AUTISM - A DIFFERENT BRILLIANT" WE FOUND LOCAL DANCE GROUP EVERYONE CAN DANCE. THIS GROUP HAS MANY OF ERICS FRIENDS IN IT AND IS MADE UP OF PEOPLE WITH ALL TYPES OF ABILITIES AND DIFFERABILITIES. (SOME WOULD CALL THEM DISABILITIES) THE DANCE GROUP IS RUN BY VOLUNTEER THERAPISTS, TEACHERS AND PARENTS. THEY PERFORM REGULARLY AND EVEN COMPETE IN EISTEDFODDS. THIS YEAR THEY HAVE BEEN INVITED TO DANCE AT SEA WORLD. THIS WONDERFUL GROUP EVEN RUN ART CLASSES FROM THE CASULA POWERHOUSE MUSEUM. THEY ARE ALLOWING MANY CHILDREN ON THE AUTISMSPECTRUM THE ABILITY TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND ENJOY THEMSELVES ON STAGE, JUST LIKE EVERYONE CAN !
