Doug Pout has not been at Currajong Disability Services (CDS) for long, but he is already making a huge difference in the lives of many.
The CDS support worker is about to embark on a new mission to raise awareness for autism.
“My partner Courtney and I thought we could make a difference so we registered as “Dougney” for the Autism Walk,” said Doug.
It did not take long for Matt Medlyn and Neil Hamilton to also get on board. “We are hoping to get more people involved, so we can enter a CDS team,” he said. Matt is excited to be involved. “We have a number of clients at CDS who have autism and with Autism Awareness Month in April, this is an important mission.”
The Walk for Autism is a free virtual walking event, which means you can do it at your own pace, in your own time. Challenge yourself to walk 10,000 steps a day for eight days from Sunday, 31st March to Sunday, 7th April to raise much-needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.
