EnrichPlus

Successful Run

20 Nov

Enrich+ not only receive great services from IT Partners, but one of IT Partners team, Jason Walker, recently went the extra mile (literally) for us. Jason did the Round the Bridges race as a fundraiser for our Enrich+ Spectrum Energy service. He completed the run in 1:01:31 and was feeling pretty tired afterwards!

 

Autism is close to Jason’s heart, his wonderful niece is on the autism spectrum and he understands the real challenges people with autism and their families have in being funded for services.

 

Autism is a neuro developmental difference that impacts around 1 in 88 people in New Zealand. Those with autism can face challenges in communication and managing social situations. For many years there has been limited support available for people with autism and their families.

 

Enrich+ recognised the need for services for those with High Functioning Autism (previously known as Asperger’s) due to a serious gap in funding and services. Those with Autism often miss out on ‘a life like any other’. In 2015 Enrich+ Spectrum Energy was established to fulfil the service need for those with Autism, their whānau / caregivers, schools and employers, across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty. Enrich+ Spectrum Energy does not receive any funding from the government and as such relies on a fee for service structure and philanthropic funding.

 

Every contribution counts – we couldn’t do the work we do, without our supporters, so we were really thrilled to have Jason doing the Round the Bridges race, and fundraising on our behalf.

 

A big thank you to those of you who have already donated, and those of you who are about to! Thanks again Jason, you are a Star!
