    I had an idea for a challenge in the month of April since it's autism awareness month. Since people with autism have different sensory issues, what if we could all do a barefoot walk challenge for people with autism? Let me know if that sounds good. I was thinking about having this be done world wide. It could be held anywhere an individual wants to. Kind of like wiggle your toes day. Anyone can join in. People can take the challenge by posting a video on social media of them walking barefoot during autism awareness month and share what sensory interactions they faced and how someone with autism might experience those interactions. Then they'd challenge a friend to do the same thing.

    Just so we're clear it's supposed to say April 2 - April 30 2017 not 2016.

    I would definitely take part in this! My oldest son is autistic, so I am kinda partial to the cause! Sounds like a great way to raise awareness! Good idea Tyler!

    Hey guys! As 2017 rolls in, that means three months until the barefoot autism challenge comes too. TJ and I are communicating on what we're going to include and also artwork. There'll be an announcement in the next few months and I'll be updating on how it's going. I encourage you all to share this challenge with other BRS members to promote autism awareness and take part in this challenge! #barefootautismchallenge

    Hey guys. After much deliberation, I'm officially having the autism challenge be letting people do a video AND/OR a picture of them walking barefoot for autism awareness.
