DIGICEL was pleased to have successfully hosted the third annual “Digicel Festival of Fun Day” for children with special needs at the Beausejour Stadium Indoor Facility.
With more than 400 children, teachers and parents from around Saint Lucia attending and participating in the day-long event the Beausejour Stadium Indoor Facility was brought to life with a range of sporting and social activities.
The Digicel Festival of Fun Day included fun sports, football shoot outs, table tennis, wheel chair racing, blind cricket, soccerrama, bouncy castle, creative arts, bocce, face painting, clown, balance and bounce and many more fantastic activities and games.
“We believe in a world where there are millions of different abilities but not disabilities” commented Delroy Alexander, Chairman of Sacred Sports Foundation Inc. “People with intellectual and physical challenges are among the most vulnerable in Saint Lucia. All too often our Caribbean brothers and sisters cling to misperceptions and stereotypes. Sport helps showcase the skills and dignity of our special schools children. A typical unified sports game unites people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team” she further added.
Digicel Marketing Executive, Fiona Smith commented: “This was a wonderful forum that provided a unique opportunity for Digicel to assist the youth and those with special challenges”.
