Wheelchair Challenge 2022/2023!

The aim of the Wheelchair Challenge is to raise much needed funds to support the important work we do in providing social, recreational and sporting opportunities for children and adults with disabilities.

For people living with physical disability, involvement in any sport offers very real benefits to health, strength and resilience.

Rebound WA programs address the 30% participation gap in sport, recreation and social programs between people with a physical disability and their able-bodied peers.

We support children and adults with a physical disability to have the same opportunities to get active as their able bodied peers.


The Challenge

The Wheelchair Challenge is an event that challenges people to spend one day of their life in a wheelchair while raising funds for Rebound WA.

The main aims of the Wheelchair Challenge are to:

👩‍🦽  Raise awareness of the challenging daily issues of accessibility encountered by people with a physical disability, by providing their able bodied peers with the opportunity to have first-hand experience in a wheelchair;

👩‍🦽 Raise much needed funds to help us continue the work we do; and

👩‍🦽 Raise awareness of the work we do in the community.

How can the funds I raise help?

🏀 $1,000: Represents the average cost of a young child with a disability and their family to attend a recreational camp for the weekend to participate in a fantastic range of inclusive activities and games.

🏀 $2,000: Allows a Rebound WA staff member and athlete to attend a rehabilitation hospital to introduce in-patients to the world of disability sports and the opportunities available.

🏀 $5,000: Represents the cost of a hand-cycle we loan to children and adults to regain their independence following a life changing injury. It starts them on their journey of building a new life.
