Up Your Game for Autism

Up Your Game for Autism

Up your game for Casual Day today and buy a sticker to support Autism Eastern Cape, the Port Elizabeth charity which gives support and information to families living with autism in this region.

Casual Day is an annual project of the national Association for People with Disabilities and Autism Eastern Cape is a registered associate of the APD.

This year the theme is "Up Your Game", and you are encouraged to wear sporty gear today like running shoes, a tennis headband, flippers, PT pants, soccer jersey or even a Speedo for the brave!

Your sticker gives you the licence to dress like the athletes you wish you were. 

We may not all be able to swim like Michael Phelps,or run like Usain Bolt and Wayde Van Niekerk to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games. However, we all can show we have hearts of gold.

Of the R10 you give for your sticker, R6 goes to the national APD and R4 to Autism Eastern Cape, which helps to keep much needed funding in our city (Stickers are also available at several national retail chains, and the proceeds then go to the national APD directly).
