Sport as a way to unite
Sport is a great way to get fit, gain confidence, enrich your life and meet new friends.
For those who have suffered serious injury or illness and are living with a disability, it is also a very powerful rehabilitation tool.
For many people with disability participating in a sport is an important pathway to social connection and a tool to rejoin the community.
Kathleen Nicholls, sponsorsip and events manager, from the Wheelchair sports NSW team, spoke about how sports empower people with disabilities.
