Po­lice join run

The Cobram Courier - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Co­bram Show­grounds’ stage is set to host a po­liceled torch run in con­junc­tion with Spe­cial Olympics Aus­tralia.

Vic­to­ria Po­lice’s Eastern Re­gional Aware­ness Tour has hit the road and is com­ing to Co­bram on Fri­day, Septem­ber 21.

Part of that tour is a law en­force­ment torch run, where the men and women in blue have been joined by Spe­cial Olympics Aus­tralia in the de­liv­ery.

It is an op­por­tu­nity to share the flame of hope with com­mu­ni­ties across re­gional Vic­to­ria and pro­mote the im­por­tance of in­clu­sion and ac­cep­tance for peo­ple with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­a­bil­ity.

Spe­cial Olympics Aus­tralia is host­ing the run through some main streets of Co­bram.

It will be fol­lowed by a fun come-and-try sports event pro­mot­ing the im­por­tance of phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and well­be­ing.

Also on the day, fol­low­ing the come-and-try event, will be a se­cre­tive but ex­cit­ing and ex­clu­sive an­nounce­ment re­gard­ing the Tri-State Games to ev­ery­one in at­ten­dance.

It is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for those liv­ing with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­a­bil­ity to be in­volved, as the group in­cludes some of the most marginalised mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

Sport is an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity to pro­vide all Aus­tralians with so­cial con­nec­tions and a health­ier life.

To get in­volved and help out, en­gage the com­mu­nity and make ERAT into the amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­a­bil­ity in Co­bram that it should be.

The torch run will take place from 9 am at the show­grounds, at 16 Bank St.

If you can only make it to the come-and-try day fol­low­ing the torch run, head along to the show­grounds from 9.30 am un­til about noon.
