Disabled Sports Expo ~ Saturday 23 February (10am-2pm)

 

Parafed Wellington is hosting a  Disabled Sports Expo at the ASB Sports Centre, Kilbirnie, Wellington

Saturday 23 February (10am - 2pm)

Our aims for the Expo are:

    1. to provide an opportunity for physically disabled people in Wellington to come and find out what sport and recreation opportunities are available for them in the Wellington Region
    2. to showcase what opportunities and activities are currently provided by Wellington sports groups and organisation which accommodate physically disable (this is where we think you can help us)
    3. to enable those people interested in physically disabled sport to meet with other likeminded people
    4. to provide a forum for those sports clubs and groups who don't know how to accommodate physically disabled into their activities to come and talk with those groups who have been successful in integrating our requirements

We want to make it as active and dynamic as possible so we will be showcasing Wheelchair Rugby and Wheelchair Basketball - including some of our National representatives from the Wellington Region playing exhibition games during the Expo.  We will also be having equipment available for people to try.

 

We would like you to be part of this Expo to showcase your sport and recreation opportunities - bring equipment along people can try - bring information on your organisation - bring an open mind and a fun sense of humour.

 

There is NO COST involved in being part of this Expo.

 

This is not a Trade Show, so we will not be having suppliers and commerical exhibitors at the Expo.

 

We also invite you to forward this invitation to other organisations so we can spread the word on what we are doing.

 

Please feel free to contact us about the Expo, but we will be back in touch with you in the early new year to confirm your involvement as an exhibitor, supporter and participant in this event.
