WATCH: Hundreds of kids with disabilities come together for annual athletics championships

Hundreds of local kids came together today to compete in the 33rd Annual Athletics Championships for children with a disability at the BLK Performance Centre at Runaway Bay.

Students from 25 schools took part in more than 400 events across the day, as well as a colourful parade complete with costumes, music and a torch ceremony.

The carnival is the only one on the Gold Coast that is specifically for children with a disability, giving them an opportunity to participate at a competitive level.
