What is “Boating for Autism”?

At the heart of project Horizon’s ethos is creating a unique platform to run our awareness campaign. Raising awareness for autisme through marine motorsport. Therefore we founded a npo “Varen voor Autisme” (Boating for Autism).

Many families across the country are confronted daily with autism. “As of 2010, the number of people affected is estimated at about 1–2 per 1,000 worldwide. It occurs four to five times more often in boys than girls”*.

Horizon wants to break the mold and in a small way offer support to these families. You get born with autism. 

Our project

Horizon aims at giving kids with autisme an unforgettable ride on the Sea in RIBs.  We need sufficient funding. If you want to donate, contact me or go directly to our project site ( Be generous … you receive the kid’s eternal gratitude!
