Win win: Walking Rippa Rugby

From Nine To Noon, 11:38 am on 21 February 2018

Long-time disability advocate and Petone based athlete Neelu Jennings and General Manager of Rugby NZ Neil Sorenson talk to Kathryn Ryan about Walking Rippa Rugby. This is a new game aimed at engaging a wide range of people who wouldn't normally want to, or be able to play rugby, whilst in turn enhancing rugby's appeal and culture. This is happening through Neelu's initiative Limitless with Support which aims to make social change by enabling disabled people to be a part of their wider community through sport. Neelu was the first legally blind person to complete the Coast to Coast. She has climbed Mounts Aspiring and Kilimanjaro, and kayaked the Cook Straight. Neelu is looking for people to get involved and help fund this and other integrated sports - get in touch here.
