Leading disability service provider Activ has cancelled this year’s Chevron City to Surf for Activ due to the ongoing risks posed by COVID-19.
Activ CEO Michael Heath said the health and safety of the community comes first when it comes to planning for this event.
“The decision to not hold the event again this year was very difficult, however, the health and safety of all Western Australians comes first so we believe this is the most responsible decision,” said Mr Heath.
“Our aim is to bring back this much-loved community fun run in 2023.”
“We remain focused on our ongoing work to support Western Australians with disability, particularly during this challenging time.”
The Chevron City to Surf for Activ is Activ’s largest annual fundraising event, with donations raised directed to supporting Western Australians with intellectual disability to achieve their independence goals.
“I would like to acknowledge the ongoing support and generosity of Chevron Australia, who has made this community event possible for many years, as well as help to raise important funds for Western Australians with intellectual disability,” said Mr Heath.
“Fundraising activities are important for Activ as they allow us to do more as a provider such as exploring additional independence pathway options for people with intellectual disability.”
“For those runners, walkers, rollers and volunteers who look forward to fundraising through participating in the fun run event each year, we would greatly appreciate your continued support by donating to Activ via our website at https://www.activ.asn.au/donations/.”
“We look forward to providing an update on the 2023 event as soon as we can.”
