In partnership with Peke Waihanga Artificial Limb Service, dsport delivers the Kids Get Active days. This initiative started a few years ago in Wellington and we are now delivering across the country.
The aim of the 1-day programme is to give young amputees an activity day, based around an athletics fundamental skills, help them to meet other young amputees, connect with local disability sports organisations, and have a fun day out.
It's also a great opportunity for family and whanau to network and make new connections.
This summer season we have delivered the programme in Hawkes Bay, Palmerston North, Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch. We are planning on a final event in Tauranga in late summer.
