The Greatest Virtual Run is the major fundraising event for Autism charity, Running on the Spectrum. This is a non-profit event with 100% of proceeds donated directly to the charity for children on the Autism Spectrum.
The aim and purpose of Running on the Spectrum is to encourage children on the Spectrum to experience running and all the benefits, both mentally and physically that go hand in hand with movement.
Running on the Spectrum was founded by ultra runner and Autistic adult, Jason Reid. Jason has lived in both Australia and New Zealand and currently resides in Taranaki where he works in schools directly helping children with ASD. He is currently developing educational programs to be offered to schools and parents and spends much of his spare time speaking with school communities about Autism acceptance and creating running programs for Autistic kids to help with anxiety and depression. Once completed his, Living with Autism program will promote understanding, acceptance and compassion.
