Broome PCYC wins the 2021 Heart Foundation Active Australia Innovation Challenge
With over 619 entries, we are excited to announce that Broome PCYC has secured $10,000 in funding as the 2021 Heart Foundation Active Australia Innovation Challenge winner.
The aim of the Active Australia Innovation Challenge is to identify barriers to increasing physical activity and develop innovative ideas to address these barriers in a chosen community with the long-term goal of raising awareness about the value of staying active.
This project will allow Broome PCYC to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people between the ages of 10 to 18 to get active through weekly roller-skating sessions.
Broome PCYC Centre Manager, Annie Dann said, “Roller-skating was a huge hit at PCYC when I was growing up and this activity holds a special place in the hearts of previous PCYC participants. It was the highlight of every young person’s Friday night so I can’t wait for it to come back.”
Annie continued, “Roller-skating is fun for all ages, so it is a great way to keep young people active and engaged and is something that all members of the family can get involved with.”
We can’t wait to see video clips of the roller-skating in action!
