Go All Out Week 2022 – July 18th to 24th
CARA Sport Inclusion Ireland are delighted to announce that the inaugural Go All Out -Inclusive Outdoors Week will take place from the 18th – 24th of July this year.
Cara’s Inaugural Go All Out Week is set to inspire people with disabilities and professionals working in the outdoor sector to understand the value and to see the opportunities that are available to them in their local communities. Outdoor activity providers across Ireland are being asked to get involved in what is Irelands first ever Inclusive Outdoors Week to help create more opportunities for people with disabilities to be active in the outdoors. The week is also an opportunity for people with disabilities to understand the value of participation in the outdoors and how they can access the activities and amenities locally.
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 and inclusion.
