Two entrepreneurs are walking from Brighton to Scotland to raise funds for their innovative tech idea to help people with autism – and going through Southwark en route.
Shaheen Mufti, from Brent, and Milo Alexander from Bexley, will be undertaking the 500 mile challenge on September 15, carrying everything they need along the way including a tent.
They have already raised £1,544 for AI for autism, an initiative that aims to develop new technology to help identify environmental triggers that affect people with sensory sensitivity – one of the hallmarks of autism.
The duo have also been working with parents of autistic children, developers and healthcare professionals to help develop their idea.
Shaheen is regularly posting shout out videos on youtube to all who have contributed.
