AFL4ME - “Amazing”

MEDIA RELEASE: May 21st, 2015

That one word says it all. The looks, the smiles, the excitement of people with disability attending their first ever AFL game is overwhelming and the wonderful Adelaide Oval adds another spectacular dimension to this great disability community inclusion event run by the Intellectual Disability Association of SA.(IDASA)

This Sunday when Port Power play Richmond we will hit the 250 attendee mark for the 2015 season so far. By season end we hope to reach 600 very special guests bringing our AFL4Me attendance to over 1,000 since this program started in 2011.

The expansion to 600 guests this year for AFL4Me is due to the extraordinary support we have had from so many people and organizations. Particularly pleasing is the attendees from rural areas including Port Lincoln, Port Augusta and the Barossa Valley so far

Free entrance to the ground

Free reserved seating in a fully accessible corporate facility

Free afternoon tea

Free soft drinks, tea coffee and biscuits

And the excitement of top class AFL Football and 50,000 spectators screaming their lungs out creates an atmosphere that is simply world class.

Very Special Guests so far include

Our Lady of La Vang School

Hamilton Special School ? Disability Unit

Disability Unit Henley High School

Bedford

Barossa Enterprises

Suneden Special School

Port August Special School

Port Lincoln Special School

Riverland Special School

Kardinya

Disability Unit Henley High School

Treetop Specific School

SCOSA

SASRAPID

None of this could happen without the outstanding support from the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority, the Port Power and the Adelaide Crows Football Clubs both of who’s staff have all been magnificent and our very generous sponsors including a Community Benefits SA Government Grant, The Adtrans Charity Golf day and some private donors.

Special thanks must go to our AFL4Me Committee and our volunteers who organise and host this program. Renee Durden deserves a knighthood and everyone else has made this fun event something very special and to be truly treasured.
