Stay in touch with Orana Autumn 2018
Special Olympics National Games sponsorship
Orana is extremely proud to be the Families and Supporter’s Partner for the 2018 Special Olympics Australia National Games that will take place in Adelaide from the 16th to the 20th of April this year. Held every four years, the Games provide five days of competition for athletes with an intellectual disability to compete in a range of sports, including athletics, basketball, bocce, bowling, equestrian, soccer, golf, gymnastics, sailing, swimming and tennis.
The relationship that we nurture with families, supporters and carers of the people we support, has always been crucial to our existence, with families playing an integral part in who we are and why we exist as an organisation.
Leisure and sporting activities play an important role in our community. Their many benefits include improving the health and well-being of individuals, contributing to the empowerment of individuals and promoting the development of inclusive communities. Participation in recreation, leisure and sporting activities is one of the many opportunities people with disability have to engage in community life. Through their involvement with Special Olympics, people with disability learn skills and build the confidence that can help them achieve their personal best in sport and in life.
Orana has enjoyed a nine year partnership with Special Olympics South Australia, supporting the organisation’s Community SportsLink program, helping to provide South Australians living with disability the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sporting activities. As a natural extension of our existing relationship with Special Olympics SA, we were delighted with the opportunity to become the Families and Supporters Partner for the 2018 Special Olympics Australia National Games.
We are thrilled to be part of this wonderful event.
