Police join run
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.
