9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The DRP Children’s Games have enjoyed a long history of providing a fun and inclusive sporting opportunity to children aged 5 to 18 with a variety of physical disabilities. Young competitors from across Durham Region and the GTA support one another in participation-based sporting activities that include basketball, wheelchair rugby, parachute and more!
A full day of fun and excitement is planned with the Durham Regional Police Service and the community. Provided with a team-specific Tshirt, athletes are ushered throughout the Pickering Recreation Complex to various activity stations where they support one another in an array of athletic challenges. Each station presents a new challenge or obstacle that athletes are encouraged to participate in, each of which are designed to be fully accessible and enjoyable to athletes of varying physical limitations.
All the athletes receive a medal for their participation and outstanding athletes are recognized for their spirit with the Laura Zutell Spirit Award.
March of Dimes Canada (MODC) is proud to be a part of the Durham Regional Police Children's Games.
MODC will be presenting two children's DesignAbility® Skatehorses to the Pickering Recreation Complex via the Pop Tabs Program. This is an example of how the program collects and recycles pop tabs in support of our Assistive Devices' and DesignAbility programs.
Please come out and be part of the fun filled day.
