At TADSA we love being first. The first to design a prototype or preliminary version of a device, piece of equipment or solution to meet an individuals expressed needs to improve independence, autonomy, and inclusion. That’s why we want to be first this year to honour and acknowledge International Day of People with Disability by hosting the first-ever Freedom Wheels Inclusion Classic. Download and print a poster.
What is the Freedom Wheels Inclusion Classic?
The Freedom Wheels Inclusion Classic is a ‘walk-ride-or roll’ to help kids, adults and seniors living with a disability to experience freedom of movement and inclusion, sometimes for the first time.
You decide if you want to walk, ride, run or roll around Keith Stephenson’s beautiful nature reserve. Encourage your family and friends to join in as an individual, a family, a club, or a team and together help break down the barriers and promote greater awareness, understanding and inclusion that will change the lives of over 350,000 South Australians living with disability and age-related challenges to mobility, access, and participation in community.
Our range of modified bikes and trikes will be available for children and adults who require assistance to participate or bring along your own bike, trike skates/skateboard, rollerblades, wheelchair, or scooter and roll away to your hearts content.
By joining the first-ever Freedom Wheels Inclusion Classic you are helping to provide support, education, and encouragement to those living with mobility related challenges and are sending a message that exclusion on the basis of disability is not ok.
It promises to be a community event to remember. At the end of the walk, ride and roll all participants are invited to enjoy a free sausage and refreshments and entertainment. There will be prizes and give-aways and opportunities to relax and connect with family and friends.
Registration opens on October 24th at 9am.
