Huge thanks to Richard Houghton who has recently completed the Barcelona Marathon to fundraise for us and has raised over £600!


Richard told us:

It was a pleasure to have supported Autism East Midlands for the Barcelona marathon, Two of my cousin’s were diagnosed with ASD at a young age and our whole family is from Arnold, Nottingham. It made total sense for me to run for Autism East Midlands!

I ended up crossing the finish line after 4hrs 22mins, slightly outside of my planned time, but with the aching knees and very warm weather I was more than happy just to finish. Supporters on the street shouting “Vamos” and of course knowing I was running for such a good cause as Autism East Midlands was the driving motivation to drag myself over the line!

Well done, Richard! Thanks for your support.
