Businessman Russell Fox has embarked on a world record breaking attempt in Cape Town by taking on a 32km broken glass trial barefoot to raise funds and awareness for children with autism.

This is aimed at raising funds for the Nosh For Josh Foundation which was established in 2011.

“Some parents don’t want to accept that there’s a problem with the child, they don’t reach out to other families or parents. Having guidance and support helps you to reach out to other parents and hear what they are doing and take the guidance from there,” says Founder, Sandy Pekeur.
