Run for Autism this summer

Autism research charity, Autistica has positions available in the British 10K and Royal Parks half marathon

Autistica funds and campaigns for medical research to understand the causes of autism, improve diagnosis, and develop new treatments and interventions.

As part of its fundraising, Autistica has positions in the British 10K and Royal Parks half marathon.

Since its founding in 2004, Autistica has raised over £8.5 million in support of autism research, and has become established as the UK’s largest and leading autism research charity.

Autistica funds 40 world class scientists in universities across the UK, ensuring that the brightest minds are focused on helping those with autism.
