A highlight on the Currajong Disability Services calendar is its annual All Abilities Swimming Carnival to be held at Parkes Aquatic Centre on 4th March.
Participants from Orange, Temora, Trangie, Dubbo, Cowra, Forbes, Bathurst and Parkes will compete in this flagship event. Last year’s event saw 120 entrants, and interest shown so far indicates this year will be bigger and better.
Organiser Indigo Kriedemann said the day was a real highlight on the regional disability calendar and many were already looking forward to it. “It’s a great event that brings together people far and wide within the disability community,” Indigo said.
“The day keeps growing and going from strength to strength. This year is already looking like a bumper carnival!”
In previous years Currajong has often dominated, however Live Better from Orange got the chocolates last year, despite sterling efforts in the pool by Ian Kaupke and Tim McDonald.
As Indigo points out, the day is not about who wins, but who is having a go, and “everyone coming together to connect and meet new friends and old ones”.
“It’s also a real social outing, and many of us get a buzz out of it!”
