Cara’s inaugural Go All Out Week has been developed by Cara Sport Inclusion Ireland supported by Sport Ireland Outdoors to increase awareness among people with disabilities, their families / carers and outdoor activity providers on the benefits of regular exercise, a healthy lifestyle, and opportunities to participate in physical activity, of people’s own choosing in the outdoors.
Organisations and individuals are being invited to host inclusive outdoor events nationwide during the week. It could be hiking, walking, running, swimming, canoeing, cycling, fishing, gardening, or even just strolling or rolling on the beach
Go All Out also aims to increase the awareness and build the capacity of outdoor activity providers to be more inclusive and understanding of their provision of accessible and inclusive programmes for people with disabilities in their local community. Through the delivery of the week, Cara Sport Inclusion Ireland will provide inclusion training to professionals that take part in the week in order to increase their level of knowledge and skill in the area of disability inclusion.
The Go All Out week will run nationally from the 18th to the 24h July 2022. The week will include online webinars, personal stories from people with disabilities and up to date information of activities that will be happening around the country.
