South Dublin County Sports Partnership, in conjunction with Dublin’s Outdoors and South Dublin County Council, are hosting ‘’Inspired @ South Dublin’’, a health and wellbeing event in Corkagh Park, Clondalkin on Saturday, September 14th from 11am -4pm.

Our event ambassador is world boxing champion Kelly Harrington, who will be there on the day and will be participating in one of our Q&A sessions.

 

The event will have 3 separate zones – The Power of Sport; I am Inspired and Wellness.

 

In ‘The Power of Sport’ zone, we are inviting NGB’s to demonstrate their respective sport and provide information to attendees about how they can participate locally.

Each sport will have a dedicated outdoor space on grass in which each individual NGB attending will host demos, mini games and/or skills competitions to encourage active participation and interaction between the NGB’s and the attendees.

 

In the ‘’I Am Inspired’’ zone we will be offering a range of mass participation classes such as boxing, HIIT, yoga and dance.

The main stage will be located here featuring talks and Q&A sessions with well-known athletes, sports stars and nutrition experts.

 

The ‘’Wellness’’ zone will have a smaller stage featuring sessions on adult and children nutrition and mindfulness, as well as practical participation activities such as Tai Chi and pilates.

 

There will be a dedicated food and drinks zone in the park where there will be a variety of healthy food and drinks on offer from numerous local companies as well as burgers, crepes and ice cream for all the family.

Outside these zones there will be numerous local fitness and holistic businesses that will be showcasing their work and providing attendees with information and demonstrations of their services e.g. Indian head massages, how to foam roll etc.

To keep the children entertained we have face painting, balloon modelling and children’s games running throughout the day.

The event will conclude with a family fun colour run around the cycle track where paint, white t-shirts and glasses will be provided free of charge.

 

They require volunteers to help out on the day from initial set up to take down and for general stewarding duties during the day. The event itself starts at 11.00am and is planned to finish at 4.00pm.

Volunteers are required from 9.30am to 5.00pm.

 

This will be the final event in what has become a very busy Health and Wellbeing Week, if you have volunteered for other events on this special week, thank you so much, if you have any time or energy left, we would love to see you.
