Indigeco Elders Win The 20th Annual Elders Olympics
On 29/04/2021, Gumbaynggirr Elders hosted the Elders Olympics at Nambucca Heads.
The event sees teams of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders (50+years) come together for a day of friendly competition and celebration of healthy living.
Teams engage in sporting activities that promote healthy lifestyles and wellbeing, provide opportunities for engagement in social activities and develop ongoing networks. It is also a day for our elders to get together and have a yarn.
The games are all about skill & accuracy. A few of the games were throwing the football through the bullseye hole, quoits and walking relay. The Indigeco Elders Team are all originally from Karuah on “Worimi Country.”
