NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES
Together we can all be heroes for kids with autism
Caleb McEachern may only be 7 years old, but he already knows the definition of a true hero.
Last year his father Adam decided to take on the gruelling ‘Murph Challenge’ in support of Kerry’s Place – so other kids on the autism spectrum like Caleb could get the same opportunities Kerry’s Place provides for him.
“Kerry’s Place was a big help for us to figure out how this world looks to him,” said McEachern. “I’m just a dad, and I’ve been trying to learn what this is. I was shocked to learn that one out of every 66 kids in Canada will land somewhere on the spectrum.”
In honour of that startling stat, Adam’s going bigger and better this year, and he’s made 66 the magic number – inviting others to join him in two-hour blocks to complete 66 cycles:
- 1 km run/walk
- 66 Push-ups
- 1-minute Plank
- 66 Air Squats
All proceeds will go to help families in need access the services and programs that have helped Caleb so much.
