Telethon Kids Carnival
Channel 7 Perth’s Telethon is an iconic event in this state and Gymnastics WA had the great privilege of delivering a fun activation for the Telethon Kids Carnival at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 26-27 October. This provided Gymnastics WA with a great opportunity to showcase the benefits of fundamental movement and promote avenues for young people to join local clubs.
The Gym Warriors (6+ yrs) and Little Gym Warriors (0-5 yrs) fundamental movement circuits welcomed 3,115 children over the whole weekend. Gymnastics WA were delighted to see so many happy faces from the wider community enjoying bouncing, climbing and swinging. A huge thank you to all coaches and staff who assisted over the jam-packed weekend.
As an extra bonus, Gymnastics WA and athletes from 7 gymnastics clubs had the opportunity to be involved in the televised countdown to Telethon through filmed opportunities in the Gym Warriors circuit. The athletes had a blast sharing the stage with Clairsy, Matt and Kymba from radio station Mix 94.5.
Gymnastics WA would like to thank Telethon and congratulate them for reaching the record fundraising total of $42.6 million in 2019.
