Athletics for everyone

In the NMS and elementary school Andritz, we were able to organize a special kind of athletics competition that brought sunshine to the end of September 2016. The children had the opportunity to learn how to master life with an impairment. Besides the usual disciplines, they were allowed to try their hand at sprinting with a wheelchair, throwing with their weaker hand or jumping off with their weaker leg. These different stations were complemented by a wheelchair course.

We were supported by a female national table tennis champion and a former Paralympic athlete. The children were very happy to take up the sporting challenges and had a lot of fun exploring this new perspective.
