The National Capital Sports Council of the Disabled (NCSCD) will be organizing a two week long National Capital Para Festival from Saturday September 28 to Saturday October 12 2013 at Ottawa locations still to be confirmed.
This festival will bring together Para sport clubs from within the National Capital region. Our goal is to bring a much deeper understanding and awareness of local Para related sports. Not only will we introduce Para sport clubs to the public but we will showcase these sports through actual games and practices.
The two week festival begins with ‘Walk and Wheel for Para Sports’ – an event involving sponsored individuals and teams who walk and wheel along a designated route through the Carleton University campus.
Funds raised from this event will be used to support NCSCD events and Para sport clubs in the region. The route leads into the exposition area where a range of exciting displays and exhibits will present the different Para sports and their clubs. Following this introductory day Para sport games and practices will be held throughout Ottawa.
