All Stars Shine in Community

IAS Shine websmlThe Apunipima Indigenous Basketball All Stars are heading to Cape York during the school holidays to share skills and stories with young people in Mapoon, Napranum, Coen, Pormpuraaw, Hopevale, Wujal Wujal and Mossman Gorge.

The community visits, delivered in partnership with PCYC Queensland, will see the All Stars players deliver skills and drills sessions, followed by Apunipima-led youth engagement activities that aim to raise awareness on how smoking and drinking sugary drinks cause sickness and chronic disease.

Apunipima Team Leader Health Promotion Nina Nichols said the combination of star players, physical activity and targeted health awareness sessions will provide young people with an opportunity to engage with serious issues while having fun.

“We are excited that the All Stars, following on from their courageous Canadian campaign at the World Indigenous Basketball Challenge, are visiting Cape York communities and demonstrating the rewards that commitment, practice and healthy living can bring,’ she said.

‘The aim of this program is to encourage and support young people on the Cape to make healthy choices their story.’
