The CBD will be awash with bright orange this Sunday morning, 1 November, when South Australians take to the streets of Adelaide to take part in the scosa Kick it walk to support people living with disabilities.
The Kick it walk is the culmination of a major healthy living campaign which has been running to encourage South Australians to kick a bad habit, or commence a positive new behaviour, to maximise their own health and potential.
The theme is consistent with scosa’s main purpose of Maximising Potential of South Australians living with disabilities.
John Tobin, General Manager Business Development & Marketing at scosa commented, “For the past couple of months, many people have been changing their behaviours, such as kicking the kilos through better eating, or getting off their iPads and exercising instead. It’s been a lot of fun with many workplaces getting involved which had led to some friendly inter-office competition.”
The culmination of the Kick it campaign is a 2km walk through the streets of Adelaide this Sunday, starting at 10.30am on the corner of South Terrace and Hutt Street, and finishing in Victoria Square. At the end of the walk there will be lots of family attractions, including live music, a handball competition with the Port Adelaide Football Club, games, a cooking demonstration and tastings with SA Mushrooms, plus a range of other food and drinks. There will also be loads of giveaways.
Mr Tobin added, “Even if people don’t want to kick a bad habit at this late stage, they are still most welcome to register and join us for the day. Registration is just $30 for adults and $15 for children and every participant will get a bag full of goodies which will include a cap, frisbee and sunscreen. People can register to participate for Kick it by going to www.scosa.com.au or at the starting point this Sunday. If registering on the day they should look to arrive by 10.00am.”
scosa is hoping to raise around $75,000 and is on track to achieving this goal through registrations, fundraising and sponsorship.
Founded in 1950, scosa maximises the potential of hundreds of South Australians living with disabilities and the support offered through donations and corporate partnerships directly enables scosa to expand the range of developmental programs and activities it is able to offer.
