Paralympics Virtual Ticker Tape Parade

13 September 2021 | 4:30pm AEST

While so many Australians have been in COVID-19 lockdown, watching our Paralympians compete in Tokyo has been a source of pride and inspiration.

On Monday 13th September CPActive is thrilled to host a Paralympics special event!

We’ll be speaking to several of our Paralympic athletes living with cerebral palsy returning from Tokyo about their journey to the world stage: the ups and downs, what it’s like representing Australia, and how we can keep breaking barriers for athletes with cerebral palsy and similar conditions.

A few of the other things we’ll ask about are:

  • Advice on setting goals
  • Building strategies and resilience
  • The future of the Paralympics and inclusion in sport and athletics.

The guest list is being finalised right now – register for free to secure your place and we’ll send you an email when our speakers are confirmed!!

It’s not only the CPActive community who’ll get to meet our heroes though. Our Paralympians will be in conversation with community members and young aspiring athletes with CP, who hope to follow in their footsteps and represent Australia.

Please join us on Monday 13th September at 4.30-5.30pm for this one-of-a-kind event.

This is a free online event held over Zoom with Auslan interpretation and live captioning.
