Bounce for Autism: bouncier than ever

The Tomorrow's Voices charity is hosting its sixth annual “Bounce for Autism” fun day at Southampton Rangers on Saturday.

The event, which will raise awareness of autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities, is described as organisers as “bigger and more bouncier than ever”.

Between 2pm to 8pm, activities will include 15 fun castles, water slides, Xtreme Games Zorb Racing, dance competitions, toy stalls, food & snack stalls and face painting and tattoos, and all-day entertainment.

Special guests will be The Skyriders, the international High-Flying Trampoline Team who have wowed audiences at NBA half-time shows across the United States.

Entertainment will also include DanceSations, Jump 2b Fit/Bermy Bouncers and Bermuda Gymnastics.

There will be children's dance competitions and a bouncy ball competition with prizes up for grabs.

A Tomorrow's Voices information booth will be set up throughout the day, to raise awareness of autism and support in Bermuda.

Admission is $20 for adults and children ages 2 and over, which includes Skyrider Trampoline shows, all-day fun castle access and one entrance raffle per person. All proceeds benefit the Tomorrow's Voices Autism Centre and the families it supports.

The day was designed to help Tomorrow's Voices raise awareness of autism while celebrating those young people and adults who live successfully with the disorders every day. The event helps to raise funds for Tomorrow's Voices' much needed centre and services, as well as broaden awareness of the autism spectrum and other developmental challenges that are increasingly affecting families in Bermuda.

Major sponsors are Funtyme Entertainment, which has donated all of its bouncy castles in support of Bounce for Autism, and Clarien Bank Limited.

Supporting sponsors include Tokio Millennium, Chubb, Belco, D&J Construction, Swizzle Inn, Arnold's Warehouse, The MarketPlace, Digicel, Hunts Food & Supply, Treats, Miles Market, Audio Visual Electronics, KJ&K Security, Hot Dog Delight, Affordable Party Rentals, Play Games Entertainment and Miles Market.
