Play Sport 4 Life (PS4L) and Factreton Primary School hosted a Mini Cricket World Cup Final and Fun Run/Walk event on 21 March at the 14th Avenue Sport Complex in Kensington.

According to a press release by PS4L, primary schools within the Kensington, Factreton and Maitland community competed in the event which was open to all within the community.

It was arranged so that children could experience the unity, competition and team spirit sport creates and it also allowed the adults within the community to enjoy Human Rights Day with their families.

Ward Councilor Lisa McBride and Anthony Hall from Recovering Addicts Empowering Lives (RAEL) were the guest speakers.

“We hope that through increasing the role of sports in our community, we will create positive change on a broader scale,” said Miles October, PS4L founder.

“Every individual has the right to reach their potential, to live healthy and satisfying lives, to be educated and have the resources that enable them to live their lives to the fullest and of course to be able to feed their passions,” he said.

“Play Sport4life has made it its’ mission to show that sport can be a positive tool in furthering the human rights agenda. Through the combination of sports, education, community development and personal improvement, it is possible to advance the general well-being of our community,” October said
