CURRAJONG Disability Services have claimed the 38th running of the Forbes Special Sports Day at Red Bend College.
Despite losing the marching section, Currajong rallied to take honours in walking races, musical chairs and a dance-off.
With Donna Apps, Thomas Davis and Jye Jeffrey dominating the walking races and Wade Cannon talking home the chocolates in musical chairs, it came down to the dance-off to decide the ultimate winner and right on cue, Patty Nolan waltzed onto the dance floor and lit up the large friendly crowd at the Red Bend College Hall.
Patty’s repertoire of flips, hand stands, moonwalks, foxtrots and lido shuffles stole the show in front of an enthusiastic gathering.
Yet more important than the winning was the fact that everyone had a tremendous time and this iconic event – the Forbes Special Sports Day, was another outstanding success and brought the disability community throughout the region together again.
“The day isn’t so much about who won as everyone is a winner here,” said Thomas Davis from Currajong Disability Services.
“Today is a celebration and a special day on the Forbes and disability calendar.
“We can’t thank everyone enough from the other providers to Red Bend for having us here today,” he said.
“Can’t wait to come back next year!”
If participation levels are anything to go by next year should be an even bigger spectacle as we lead into the 40th edition in 2021.
Congratulations to everyone involved for putting on a great day and participating in this flagship event.
