Smashing More Records at Telethon Family Festival

The people of Western Australia were again, on show to the rest of the country in producing another spectacular Telethon for 2021.

Gymnastics WA were incredibly privileged to be invited back to the Telethon Family Festival for a third-straight year and saw more than 2100 children engaged by our 2 very exciting circuits – KinderGym (0-5) and Gym Warriors (6+). These kids experienced balancing, landing, jumping, rolling, swinging, climbing and everything in between in our space with wonderful, experienced coaches assisting them along the way.

Participants were welcomed through the circuit from 9am – 4pm on Sunday 17 October, learning through play and discovery fun.

Gymnastics WA would like to extend its thanks to the wonderful coaches who were present on the day providing smiles, coaching oversight and a whole lot of energetic enthusiasm from the moment we opened. Thank you to our Telethon coaches:

  • Michelle Ranieri
  • Huia McFarland
  • Kristy Milne
  • Alexis Milne
  • Beau Milne
  • Dali Catterall
  • Kayla Nguyen
  • Kippa Kikalis
  • Piper Wells
  • Jessica Leake
  • Grace Poland.

Without these incredible individuals, Gymnastics WA could not have delivered such an engaging activation.

Huge thank you also must go to Gymnastics WA’s major partner, Healthway for their support in bringing Gym Warriors to the general public through community activations such as Telethon. Healthway’s ongoing support of the Gym Warriors program is hugely beneficial to Gymnastics WA, aiding in the promotion for participants to live a healthy and active lifestyle through the engagement of gymnastics programs.
