POP TABS!!!! Don’t forget to bring your POP TABS!!! We collect in partnership with March Of Dimes.
The DRP Children’s Games have enjoyed a long history of providing a fun and inclusive sporting opportunity to children aged 5 to 18 with a variety of physical disabilities. Young competitors from across Durham Region and the GTA support one another in participation-based sporting activities that include basketball, wheelchair rugby, parachute and more!
Our hungry athletes enjoy pizza and ‘comfort food’ for lunch with their families and friends, served by members of the Durham Regional Police and loyal members of the community. All of our athletes receive a medal for their participation and outstanding athletes are recognized for their spirit with the Laura Zutell Spirit Award.
Athletes arrive early for a full day of fun and excitement all while interacting with the committed men and women of the Durham Regional Police Service and the community. Provided with a team-specific t-shirt, athletes are ushered throughout the Pickering Recreation Complex to various activity stations where they support one another in an array of athletic challenges. Each station presents a new challenge or obstacle that athletes are encouraged to participate in, each of which are designed to be fully accessible and enjoyable to athletes of varying physical limitations.
Support staff from Grandview Children’s Centre and approved community volunteers assist in the facilitation of each event station. Athletes are reminded to dress comfortably for moderately physical indoor play.
Childcare services are provided by the City of Pickering free of charge for siblings of Games’ participants
