EVENT FUNDRAISING FOR THE WA DISABLED SPORTS ASSOCIATION

WADSA Final Logo

Claremont Masters has a long tradition of fundraising in association with the annual Swim Thru Perth.
Over the past decade we have raised in excess of $40,000 for various charitable organisations.

We are very pleased to announce that fundraising from the 2017 Swim Thru Perth will be supporting the WA Disabled Sports Association (WADSA).

WADSA is the peak body for the participation of people with disabilities in sport and recreation in Western Australia. WADSA’s vision is that “People with disabilities are empowered to participate in sport and recreation” and they aim towards achieving this across 12 operational areas. WADSA provides direct, assist and consultancy services to people with all disability types as well as all ages.

The 2017 Swim Thru Perth is raising funds for WADSA to support the purchase of High Care Kids Equipment Packs.

High Care Kids require constant care while living with severe and multiple disabilities. The living arrangements are unique in this group with a high percentage of children living with single parents, grandparents or in foster care.

All children require a high degree of personal care and physical support on a daily basis. Some are intellectually very competent with limited ways of expressing themselves, while others have limited cognitive capacity. Some are very physically able while others are restricted to electric wheelchairs.

The equipment packs will be determined by the interests of the children and may include: modified remote control cars, modified Nerf activities, cause and effect activities, modified art and switch adapted photography.

Donations

All proceeds from the event raffle, kiosk and bacon & egg burger sales will be donated to WADSA and a percentage of the event entry fees will also contribute to the purchase of the High Care Equipment Packs.

Competitors can also elect to make a direct donation to WADSA during the online registration process. For more information on the terrific services that WADSA provide please visit www.wadsa.org.au
