VERTO colour fun all for a good cause

Bathurst will turn to a sea of colour on Friday, December 1, all for a good cause.

To acknowledge and celebrate International Day of People with Disability, not-for-profit employment, training and apprenticeship organisation VERTO, will hold a FREE colour run at Ralph Cameron Oval and Community Hall in Raglan from 10am to noon.

“Through this colour festival, VERTO aims to promote community awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability,” VERTO CEO Ron Maxwell said.

“At VERTO, we see firsthand the value that people with a disability can make to workplaces all over the Central West every day. As employees they are loyal, engaged and motivated, and often help a business thrive.

“We’re really proud to be hosting this event and have the support of so many local disability services including Glenray, Kirinari, New Horizons and Carenne School, as we continue to work together to make the world a better and fairer place for people with a disability.”

As well as a colour run, there will be facepainting, games, competitions and lots of giveaways, and a barbecue lunch being cooked by the team from Boys from the Bush. Santa will also make a special appearance.

This event is totally free and all community members are invited and encouraged to attend. For more information, phone 1300 483 786.
