Its all about Inclusivity. Come Run 4 Autism with Lukiza Autism Foundation and Partners.
Like other neuro typical individuals, individuals with Autism deserve the right to be loved, accepted, included in all aspects of life such as education, employment, social life and contribute in the economic activities.
Although Autism Awareness has increased in Tanzania compared to even 5 years ago, more Awareness is required and needed. In 2021, the CDC US has reported that approximately 1 in 44 children in the US is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), according to 2018 data. Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with Autism than girls. It is approximated that about 1% of the world population has Autism Spectrum Disorder – over 75,000,000 people.
The objective of the ‘RUN 4 Autism’ Marathon is first and far most, to commemorate the World Autism Awareness Day 2022. Secondly is to create more Autism awareness and promote Autism Acceptance and inclusion in the society. The third objective is to promote a healthier lifestyle and family activities. In addition, the Run 4 Autism Marathon, aims to bring together a number of Autism Stakeholders for networking, exchanging ideas and Autism Advocacy. Lastly but not least, is to raise funds for more Autism awareness and acceptance campaigns as well as Autism Youth Empowerment.
