KIDS from across the Central West living with a disability will be given the opportunity to try new sports at a Variety Activate Inclusion Sports Day at Orange PCYC on Wednesday
The event will be open to all 5–18-year-olds living with a disability, and is aimed at helping them overcome barriers to taking part in sports, and showing them the range of sports available to them.
Specialist coaches, adaptive equipment and representatives from sporting clubs will be on hand to ensure the kids can try softball, athletics, cricket, football, gymnastics and ten pin bowling in a fun and inclusive environment.
At Variety we believe all Aussie kids deserve a fair go, and no matter where they live or their ability they can take part in a sport they love.Variety CEO David Sexton
