The aim of the festival is to encourage people with a disability to try a sport or a recreational activity in an environment that is inclusive and supportive as well as helping to raise awareness of the opportunities available to them.
After successfully hosting the softball component of the Special Olympics National Games at Fawkner Park last month we are now turning our attentions to helping out with the festival by offering pop in days on the 2nd-4th December in conjunction with our regular slowpitch activities. The evening will involve a come ‘n try session from 5:30-6:30 pm followed by a game.
Please share this around to any family or friends who you think might benefit, or if you think you can spare an hour or two on the above evenings we’d love to see you in the park.
