Unfortunately funding is not available for Niamh for the event so €1600 needs to be raised to cover all the expenses.
What Is Boccia?
Boccia was practiced for many years as a leisure activity until it was introduced at the New York 1984 Paralympic Games as a competitive sport.
It is practiced in more than 50 countries by those with cerebral palsy or related neurological conditions involving a wheelchair.
The game consists of four rounds in individuals and pairs competitions and of six rounds in the team competition. It is played on a hard surface, and the goal is to throw the game balls so that they land as close as possible to a special target ball, which is called the “jack.”
At the London 2012 Games, 104 athletes competed in seven medal events.
