‘Be the best you can be’ is a sports day like no other. Hosted by Snedden Hall & Gallop Lawyers, this unique event brings together the local community to provide school students in the ACT who have a physical or intellectual disability, with the opportunity to compete in a variety of modified sport activities in a fun and supportive environment.
This event allows us to showcase the outstanding programs being run by local Canberra community organisations and the day would not be possible without the continued support of our enthusiastic and generous sponsors.
The event consists of a rotation of modified activities such as athletics, basketball, soccer and modified rugby. Once the activities have come to an end, the participants get the chance to meet local celebrities, mascots and sporting heroes and take party in the dance party hosted by The Woden Schools Party Down Productions.
Here are what some of our previous attendees have said about the event:
‘Thank you for all your organisation with the sports day. The smooth running of the day and effort you and your organisation to go in making the students with a disability feel like champions is greatly appreciated and a reflection on the community mindedness of the organisation.’
‘Today our youngest son, who is autistic, attended his very first Be the best you can be, which is sponsored by your firm. Our son came home with his very first gold medal! As a parent of a special needs child you have no idea how much this means to me, with proud tears running down my face. From the bottom of my heart I say thank you for letting our son just be normal and free.’
‘It was a great day that we were thrilled to be a part of – it was awesome seeing so many smiling faces and I speak on behalf of the three of us when I say that we found it really special that we were able to use Rugby as a means to contribute to our community.’
