We Walked and Rolled

Students in Dr. Brenda Rossow Kimball’s Kinesiology 342 (Developmental Disability and Well Being), at the University of Regina, have the opportunity to put their learning into practice. Student groups partner with community groups to recognize the International Day of Persons With DisAbilities. Seven students: Kyla Bassingthwaite, Hollie Freund, Morgan Holmen, Corrie Van Burgsteden, Veronica Jack, Olga Koberts, and Tasha Gray partnered with Astonished! to create and deliver our first ever Walk and Roll event. We were all able to ‘take part in a sports and leisure opportunity’ which is one of the rights identified in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with DisAbilities.

It was a steep learning curve for all of us; but with the help of eight fabulous fundraising teams, great staff support, generous donors, and sponsorship from the Queen City Kinsmen Association and The Owl we had a great day on November 29, 2015 and raised 5% ($10,000) of our annual budget. Thank you to everyone who made this event a success. Please check out the photos from our event………
