This Sunday marks the ninth year for AEIOU’s Take A Hike Toowoomba, and what sets it apart is the strong cohort of tomorrow’s leaders who have signed up for the signature fundraising event, taking place on Sunday 31 March 2019.
With more than 100 registered hikers, the contingent includes over 50 students from Toowoomba Grammar School. The students are volunteering their time to participate in Take A Hike in support of local children with autism, and their families.
The young philanthropists will also work behind the scenes to ensure the smooth running of the annual event. “It’s inspiring to see how these young men have stepped up with the genuine intent of making a difference”, Toowoomba Centre Manager Sandy Peachy said.
“In a world where we are time poor, it is heart-warming to see such commitment and generosity of time, raising funds and awareness for the amazing young children at our Toowoomba centre. Registrations remain open until the morning of the event, and we would love to welcome even more locals on the day”, she said.
All funds raised will directly support young children with autism in Toowoomba, who are receiving vital early intervention therapy and care at AEIOU Foundation.
Autism Awareness Month commences the day after Take A Hike, and the entire month is dedicated towards raising awareness and encouraging inclusiveness. AEIOU Foundation invites the Toowoomba community to unite and Take A Hike in support of families receiving vital therapy and care at AEIOU.
Registration on the morning of the event is very welcome. Pets are also welcome, so bring the whole family and enjoy the fun!
When: Sunday 31 March 2019, registration opens from 6.30am, with staggered starts at 7am, 8am and 9am.
Celebration BBQ for hikers begins at 10am.
Where: Queens Park (corner of Margaret and Hume Streets), Toowoomba
