On the weekend, Ginninderra Athletics played host to the Community Sports Gala Day with the cooperation of the Belconnen Community Service, UC Capitals, Brumbies, Brave, ACT Netball and the University of Canberra Athletics Academy.
The day was a huge success with 23 teams representing schools from all over Canberra and Yass participating in the Primary Schools Team Challenge.
The Gala's patron was Cameron Crombie, Ginninderra's very own F38 Para Shot Put World Champion and World Record Holder. Cameron was instrumental in helping to raise much needed funds for schools.
Over $4500 was raised and it was distributed in the form of sporting equipment vouchers from Hart Sport to the first three place getters in the Boys and Girls Primary Schools Team Challenge. All monies raised went into the running of the Gala Day including providing free community activities.
Ginninderra Athletics would like to thank the generosity of the event day sponsors Audi Centre Canberra, Kidspace Occupational Therapy, LGR Productions, Capital Clinic Physiotherapy, The Smart Centre Massage and Rehabilitation, and Hart Sport.
Our next Community Event is the RU Ok? Grass Games on the 8th of December 2018. We look forward to hosting everyone again soon.
