Orana is proud to announce that it will be the Families and Supporters Partner for the 2018 Special Olympics Australia National Games, taking place in Adelaide (16 – 20 April 2018).
Orana Chief Executive Officer Nicholas Mihalaras said Orana hoped the partnership with Special Olympics would help both organisations better support people living with disability and their families.
“Orana has enjoyed a long partnership with Special Olympics South Australia, with our history together spanning more than eight years,” said Mr Mihalaras.
“It’s such a special organisation which provides support to many of our clients and their families, and helps them grow in confidence. So as soon as I heard the Games were coming to SA, I said, ‘we’re in’.”
“We are also passionate about getting to know more people, in South Australia and around the country, to provide any support and assistance we can ahead of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) coming to adults in July 2017.”
“Many families say we are an extension of their own, and this is something we are very proud to hear. I look forward to catching up with old friends, and making new ones at the Games next year.”
Special Olympics Australia National Games Chairman Jehad Rasheed said they were honoured to extend the existing relationship with Orana, who has sponsored the Community SportsLink program for many years.
“We are very fortunate to have had the ongoing support of Orana, and look forward to working closely with the team in the lead up to the Games,” said Mr Rasheed.
“Without the financial assistance of organisations like Orana, we would not be able to host the Games and bring so much joy, confidence and opportunity to athletes from around the country.”
