NZ’s Special Olympic Athletes Attended the Colour Cruise 2019

We were honoured to host some of New Zealand’s Special Olympic Athletes at the Colour Cruise: Race of Champions. They came with all their medals, demonstrating that they are the champions in their sport. It was inspiring for our racers to see their medals, proving that you can do anything if you put your mind to it.

“I think it’s a wonderful event. Great to see all the other people here that have wheelchairs, deaf and blind and obviously have all sorts of disabilities that can actually take part and participate to feel part of a community. It’s fantastic!”- said Linda, the Treasurer for the New Zealand Special Olympic Athletes.

William, a New Zealand Special Olympic Athlete said “It is the highlight of my year!” everyone was nodding in approval, as it was a fantastic day for everyone involved.

We are honoured that the New Zealand Special Olympic Athletes could celebrate the Colour Cruise with us, as we look forward to future events where we can all celebrate together.
