Over this year it has been a privilege to get to know Owen Cordwell. Owen presented a cheque to Anna Kennedy Online last year at Autism's Got Talent where I spoke after completing a 25K bike ride. This year Owen upped his challenge to 50K, Owen is 11 years old and has diagnoses of autism and ADHD. He chose to fundraise for AKO because of the help and support they give to his family and other families like his.
Owen is my friend. So I helped to promote his fundraising page and was there to support him complete his challenge and cheer him on. It was a great day with Anna, Austin and Owen's family and friends all there to support Owen. Owen managed to raise £733.75. Well done Owen!
In the run up to Owen's challenge, we had great fun making a short promo video to explain why he undertook the challenge and show off his biking skills. Click here to watch this video.
