SICAP – Supporting Individuals: Young People have a great day at Athy Dragon Boat Experience
On a memorable, wet and blustery Tuesday, 11th July, SICAP Employment Support Workers, Mary Byrne and Anthony Moyles, organised an outdoor Dragonboat Experience in Athy, bringing together participants from The LEAP Project and KARE Project Search Group.
During this invigorating team-building exercise, the participants not only honed their teamwork skills but also experienced the sheer joy of rowing together harmoniously. Laughter and camaraderie filled the air as they embraced the challenges and triumphs that came with navigating the waters as a cohesive unit.
Despite encountering numerous rain showers throughout the day, the participants displayed remarkable resilience, refusing to let the weather dampen their spirits. Their unwavering determination added an extra layer of accomplishment to the experience, making it all the more special.
In light of the seamless organisation and success of the event, Mary and Anthony extend their thanks and appreciation to Majella from Kildare Sports Partnership. Majella’s support was instrumental in ensuring that the day unfolded flawlessly, leaving indelible memories for everyone involved.
