Well known for his wide grin, Frank Dushimirimana had his greatest wish answered this week as he moves closer to his dream of representing Australia in wheelchair basketball.
He’s approaching the three point line. Two guys are sizing him up as he dribbles the ball down the sideline, no need to worry about them, he’s got this. He cuts in towards the centre. All he can see is the net, there’s nothing else around him. He’s stopped and there’s no one to pass to, it’s all Jarred. He lines it up, and with a flick of the wrist it’s… NOTHIN’ BUT NET.
The annual Stockland KidzWish Christmas Party put smiles on the faces of 4300 special needs children and carers who packed WIN Entertainment Centre last Thursday.
Cinderella took to the stage alongside the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the original Yellow Wiggle, Greg Page, while Mrs Claus watched on as her husband Santa arrived in style on the back of a police motorbike.
For 12 hours in October, Stockland Shellharbour transformed into an orange cloud for the annual KidzWish Day. The day raised funds for the KidzWish Foundation to help in delivering services and programs to the children in the Illawarra. Last week members of KidzWish, Stockland and participating stores came together for the handover of the $5625.75 raised.
