Sunshine Butterflies Disability Charity hosted their very own Sunshine Butterflies Triathlon for the second year at their property ‘Our Backyard’ in Cooroibah.
After the impact Covid-19 had on local sporting and Triathlon events in 2020, Sunshine Butterflies decided to put together their very own Triathlon for their members living with disability.
After such an overwhelming response from their members, staff and local community, the charity decided to once again bring this event to life.
Events and Marketing, Ali Kelly-McCudden said, “Sunshine Butterflies Triathlon was such an uplifting and inspiring event for our members and community, we couldn’t wait to do it again this year.”
Sunshine Butterflies Triathlon is based on the traditional triathlon format, but with a twist.
People of all abilities took part in three inclusive events which included a run, a wheelchair ride and a water splash relay.
There were smiles, cheers and tears of pure of joy as Sunshine Butterflies members came rushing through the finish line.
This event was kindly sponsored by The June Canavan Foundation.
Community Development, Lucy Mills, said, “We are so grateful to the June Canavan Foundation for making this day possible.”
The local charity was supported by many individuals and groups on the day including ambassadors Jimmy and Tam Winners of The Block 2020, local Triathletes, The Good Shepherd Lutheran college year 9 students, Sunshine Beach Special Education Unit, Emu Hire, Coles Noosa and Sunshine Butterflies partner Cerge-Your Digital Concierge.
