Family Community Day at Loughborough University 9th March

4 March 2013

Family Community Day at Loughborough University

When? 9th March 2013 (1-4pm)

What? Attendees will learn about the different kinds of wheelchair available to each sport, for example a rugby wheelchair versus a basketball wheelchair. Guests will also get to try out the state of the art sports wheelchairs as used by the stars of the Paralympics. The interactive event will give adults and children the opportunity to speak with expert staff from the Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport.

Why? To promote physical activity in the local community. We hope to encourage individuals, not exclusively those with a disability, to become physically active. We hope to improve the attendees understanding of physical activity in the disabled population.
