Over 800 kids from across the Gold Coast are competing in the Gold Coast Cabs Annual Invitational Athletics Championships at the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre today.
The event is the Coast’s only athletics carnival specifically for children with a disability, and gives them the rare opportunity to participate at a competitive level.

The kids will take part in approximately 400 events including track sprints, wheelchair events and a sports skills challenge.
Seven-year-old Ewan Munro told myGC he was so excited to win a 1st place ribbon in the wheelchair race. “My favourite part of the day was the race. It wasn’t all me though – the red guy (Sunny from the Gold Coast Suns) helped me.
Ewan said he was looking forward to spending the day watching his friends have fun. “I just love seeing other people trying their best.”
Watch the video above for our full chat with Ewan – he is adorable!
