Operation Trackshoes

This unique sports festival for people with developmental disabilities is celebrating its 42nd year

This unique sports festival for people with developmental disabilities is celebrating its 42nd year and offers a full length competitive track and field meet, a number of family picnic type games, swimming, softball, basketball, dances, concerts and banquets. Starting Friday June 8 to Sunday June 10, 2012 participants of any age (generally not younger than 6 years old) up to older adults are welcome. Competitors participate against others their own age.

Competitors are matched with individuals who, in a role similar to camp counsellors, provide support, assistance and friendship. Relationship building is a key element of this role and we try to ensure that the number of counsellors is great enough to allow maximum opportunities for fun and interaction. Some of the sporting activities are open to counsellors as well, and everyone participates in the leisure and social activities together.

Nechako Valley Community Services Society is holding a bottle drive to raise funds for members to participate in Operation Trackshoes on June 8. The bottle drive will be in your neighbourhood April 10 to April 12 but if we have missed you please drop off any bottles at 137 Victoria Street West or call 250-567-9205 for pick-up.
