Partnering with Healthway and Athletics Australia, Athletics WA help deliver and promotion of a range of athletic activities in regional WA, promoting the Go for 2&5 health message. Athletics is an activity that provides children with a foundation base to participate in a number of sport and consequently provides the opportunity to promote a healthy lifestyle to a broad and diverse population throughout Western Australia.
Made through Athletics Australia's Athletics for the Outback programme, this video highlights the work being conducted throughout the state.
Athletics WA’s Go for 2&5 Indigenous Program continues to flourish under the leadership of Lindsay Bunn, with support from WA track athletes such as Mangar Chout and Richard Akera. They have achieved excellent results in remote parts of Western Australia that now focuses on sustainability with specific coach development to provide on-going development and support.
Working with indigenous communities in the Kimberley, Gascoyne and Pilbara regions, Athletics WA endeavours to create a sustainable and thriving athletics network that promotes healthy lifestyle choices, coaching opportunities and the increased participation in athletics.
