Get Active for Invictus Games

To celebrate the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 coming down under, the City of Canterbury Bankstown is holding a sports day of its own.

The free Get Active event will be held on Friday 12 October, 10am-2pm, at Roberts Park, Greenacre, for children of all abilities aged 5-15, and include:

  • Rock climbing;
  • A ninja obstacle course;
  • Football darts;
  • Rugby League with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs;
  • AFL with the Western Sydney Giants; and
  • Cricket with Sydney Thunder.

Wheelchair basketball player and Australian representative, Rachel Kerrigan, who served seven years in the Royal Australian Air Force as an electrical engineer and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2002, will be at the event to talk about her Invictus journey and participate in the activities.

Ms Kerrigan was subsequently diagnosed with severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and, since then, has also recovered from a stroke and battled cancer.

"I went from a fully functioning successful engineer and project manager to someone I didn’t know anymore – the illness defined me, my routine and my life," she said.

"I was ruled by anxiety, fear, self-doubt, hatred, flashbacks, nightmares and a sense of not being good enough – I was literally a prisoner in my own head.

"But, through sport, my daughter, a handful of trusted friends and some amazing experiences, including the Invictus Games, my life has moved forward."

Ms Kerrigan encouraged residents to get involved in Council’s Get Active event and experience the healing power of sport.

"Sport is for everyone – there are so many avenues and options and sports available to people in both the able body and adaptive world," she said.

"This event, and the Invictus Games, will highlight some amazing stories of courage, determination and the strength of the human spirit, when faced with adversity. I urge everyone to find a sport to participate in and make the most of their future."
