This winter we are asking you to boost your wellbeing, build your fitness and embrace the short days of the cold months by participating in the AsIAm Winter Wellie Walk.
What better way exists than to pull on your wellies, pop on your coat and get out into the fresh air with your family, a group of colleagues or indeed just yourself? All funds will go towards AsIAm, Ireland’s Autism Charity.
There are so many locations in all our local areas that we can walk. It could be a park, a beach, a forest, a pitch: in fact, anywhere that is safe and you can wear your boots and wellies.
We are thrilled to invite you to participate in our Winter Wellie Walk – it really couldn’t be easier, and it makes such a difference to the community we work with.
Where: Pick a walk, a park, a beach, a forest, a pitch in fact anywhere that is safe and you can wear your boots and wellies.
When: Choose your own day of the week, pick your own time and pick your own month this Winter.
Who: Get your family involved, encourage your school, your work colleagues and sports groups to participate with you or stage their own Winter Wellie Walk
As you know, AsIAm is Irelands Autism Charity and we have a strategy of building capacity in and removing barriers for the autistic community.
We feel that we have a serious programme of work to complete, and this cannot be achieved without your support. Our targets for the end of 2025 include.

To deliver this we need your help. As a Non-Governmental Organisation (NG0) 75% of our income has to be generated from Businesses, Individuals and the Community. Your support is vital.
