Brisbane Roar has unpacked the picnic basket and unfurled the blanket to help the Cerebral Palsy League (CPL) present its annual ‘Picnic in the Park’ at the Roma Street Parklands.
With over 4000 people estimated to have attended the event, CPL-s ‘Picnic in the Park- is Brisbane-s ‘largest free picnic event-.
Offering a great day out for all ages, the ‘Picnic in the Park- hosts amusement rides, market stalls, entertainment, food stalls and of course, football.
With the club-s inflatable Roar Rapid Fire Field in tow, the friendly staff of the club-s Roar Active Program (RAP) kept the score line, and the smiles, ticking over.
Using everything from walking frames to motorized scooters to score sensational goals, the Roar Rapid Fire Field was the place to be to watch great football action.
There was even a showdown between one of the event-s sponsors – Westpac – and a squad put together by Queensland Paralympic coach Jay Larkin (Larkin-s team winning 5-3).
‘Picnic in the Park- aims to raise awareness and ‘celebrate the achievements of people with cerebral palsy and physical disability-.
The event also marks the start of Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week.
Brisbane Roar fans can catch players when the entire squad appears at the Underwood store of WOW Sight and Sound on August 14.
