The first EGA Games were held in Muswellbrook’s Victoria Park in September
Events included 100m sprint, 100m manual wheelchair race, 100m electric wheelchair and 100m relay. Participants also enjoyed live music, laser tag and a BBQ lunch.
Bengalla Mining Group General Manager Operations, Jo-Anne Scarini, said it was a terrific honour to be the major sponsor of the inaugural event supporting local people with a disability.
“The day was a great opportunity for everyone to come together, The event showcased the achievements of people with disabilities and provides a great opportunity for our community to get involved in sports activities as a participant or as a supporter” Ms Scarini said.
The event was also supported by Marty’s Farm Fresh Meats, Chemmart Muswellbrook, Berry and French Guardian Pharmacy Muswellbrook, Scone Woolworths and Muswellbrook Aldi. Also many thanks to Jill Hamling and the volunteers who ensured each event and the award ceremony ran smoothly on the day.
