    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Oscar has taken on the challenge, with the 3 tutors that have helped him over the last year, to do a 10km Rough Runner race in September to raise funds for Stony Dean School in Amersham. Between the four of them they would like to try to raise £2000.

    Stony Dean School is a specialist state senior school for autistic spectrum disorder children and children with other similar learning difficulties involving motor and social challenges. Oscar and his tutors (Team 'Oscar Winners') would like to raise enough funds to provide updated gym equipment and an outdoor gym for these children to use. Oscar has been inspired by exercise and working out in a gym and would like to help other children to be able to achieve the same.

    There is no denying that physical fitness does wonders for the body and mind and research has found a significant impact on motor and social skills in these children.

    Health and fitness is often more difficult and less intrinsically rewarding for kids on the spectrum, for many reasons, but particularly oversensitivity to lights, sounds and tactile stimuli. Many experience delays in motor and coordination development and team sports are also especially challenging for ASD children due to communication and social interaction.

    Providing a comfortable sporting environment will aid the children's social communication difficulties and behavioural needs. This gives a more relaxed environment for children to workout with specialist teachers from Stony Dean, who understand clearly their needs. The children are hopefully able to experience success in a structured environment and therefore gain motivation to pursue physical health and wellbeing and potentially creating a more enriched life as they develop into adulthood.
