Needing to use a walker to help me get around doesn’t stop me from doing the things I love. And it doesn’t stop me from giving everything a go.
Every year on 3 December, the world celebrates International Day of People with Disability. The Victorian charity, Disability Sport & Recreation, organises a free festival of accessible sport and recreation in Federation Square, so people of all abilities can try a whole bunch of different activities and find one that suits them. It’s the largest festival of its kind in the state.
Since then, I’ve been camping and skiing, played wheelchair basketball and done so much more than I could have imagined.
