Dreams came true for a group of 12 children with disabilities attending Multicap’s Avegates school holiday program at Red Hill when they were welcomed by the Brisbane Broncos at a mini-training session and meet and greet.
The opportunity to interact with one of Brisbane’s iconic sporting clubs was greatly appreciated by these young sports fans and their families as live sporting events can be hard for people with disabilities to access due to many barriers, including crowds and noise.
The Avegates Red Hill program operates next door to the Broncos training ground, which meant it was possible for the group to walk to the session and remain in familiar surrounds.
The Broncos were very accommodating of the group and provided a dedicated area so the children would be comfortable.
The Broncos players were generous with their time and focus as they spoke to each child, stopped for photos and signed posters as a memento of the special occasion.
One young fan even had the chance to run out onto the field and kick the ball with his sporting heroes.
Multicap Service Manager, Shauna Keating, oversees the Avegates team who organised the meet and greet in conjunction with the Brisbane Broncos.
“We are so grateful to the Broncos for giving our customers a unique and memorable experience that created so much excitement for them. The kids couldn’t wait to show their families their signed posters at the end of the day,” said Shauna.
Avegates is proud to deliver innovative, accessible and meaningful experiences for customers at minimal cost.
