A Virtual Event During April
Hi, my name is Tyler. I have autism. I want to challenge you. Whether you have autism or not, I want you to put yourself in the “shoes” of someone with autism–or rather take them off–and take part in the Barefoot Autism Challenge. Go to a location like a park, a trail, a sidewalk, the beach, etc., and take the challenge by removing your shoes and submersing yourself in your environment. Feel the earth. Connect with it, and connect with yourself. Then post a picture or video on social media and at the Barefoot Autism Challenge’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BarefootAutismChallenge/.
Let us know how it made you feel. Most importantly, share what advocating for someone with autism means to you. Challenge as many friends as you like using #barefootautismchallenge.
