Event: Special Olympics Kuringgai Chase Fun Run 2023, on 18 June 2023
The Kuringgai Chase is the major fundraiser for the Sydney Upper North Shore Club. The Special Olympics is a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion & community, supporting athletes of all ages to participate in grassroots sport.

Story

Through my work and personal life I have been lucky enough to meet the most incredible personalities who are living with disabilities and have seen first hand how a supportive environment which allows people to move and enjoy themselves is crucial for happiness, growth and the expression of one´s self. This is not only to raise money, this is for the visibility of people who sometimes can´t speak for themselves or are just not seen in OUR ALL everyday lives. Let´s have fun all together whenever possible, I hope you are with me :-)

Durch meine Arbeit und persönlichen Alltag durfte ich schon die unglaublich coolsten Menschen kennenlernen, die jeden Tag mit ihrer Behinderung ihren Alltag wuppen, dabei OFT keine eigenen Entscheidungen treffen können/ eingeschränkt werden und dadurch ihre persönlichen Fähigkeiten nicht voll ausleben können. Bewegung und Spaß an der frischen Luft sind so wichtig für JEDEN Menschen und von daher können Events wie dieses hier nicht oft genug stattfinden. Es geht nicht nur ums Geld sammeln, sondern um die Sichtbarkeit von Menschen, die so oft in unserer aller Leben nicht auffallen und dessen Bedürfnisse allzu oft in den Schatten gestellt werden.

peace love and happiness ;-)

cheers
