An event organised by the Singapore Autism Resource Centre, A Very Special Walk 2021is a virtual charity walk in support of persons on the autism spectrum. With the theme “Challenge for Change”, funds raised will go towards supporting programmes and services that the Autism Resource Centre offers to empower their beneficiaries to lead meaningful and independent lives.
Unlike other charity virtual walks, those who wish to participate don’t have to limit themselves to participating by doing physical activities like walking or running. A Very Special Walk invites participants to create their own challenges that fit into any of the four challenge categories that one can sign up for. There are specific ideas that are given for each category on their website too.

The third category is one that everyone can participate in – Kindness. Challenges in this category involve spreading a little kindness such as complimenting someone, helping to carry heavy grocery bags, hold the lift door and more.
Lastly, the Custom Challenge category allows participants to customise a unique challenge that best suits their ability and schedule. Some examples given in this category include starting a social project, making positive Tik Toks and more.
