Welcome to the Rapha London to Manchester fundraising support page. Firstly, a massive thank you on behalf of all at Ambitious about Autism for taking on this challenge and raising funds to support their work. You may have a personal link with autism or you may know very little about it, what ever your reason for taking on this ride you’ll by helping to raise much needed funds to make the ordinary possible for children and young people with autism across the UK.
The charity’s story starts with TreeHouse School, which was founded in 1997 by a small group of parents whose children had autism. It was the start of an amazing journey that would help change the face of autism education in the UK forever. What started with four pupils grew to become a charity, Ambitious about Autism, that has supported thousands of children, young people and their families to learn, thrive and achieve. We are proud to have made the ordinary possible for so many children and young people with autism.
Riding 220 miles in one day is going to be tough, and at points you’ll need all your strength to pull yourself through. This is what life can be like for a family with a child with autism. As you ride, take strength in the knowledge that your determination will be helping to change the lives of children and young people with autism and their families.
