Active Eight will celebrate the completion of its brand new activity hub on High Street, Toowong with ‘Active Eight Day,’ an open day launch on 8 April 2022.
Active Eight is an exclusive one-stop NDIS therapy and activity hub that caters to babies, toddlers, kids and teens of all abilities. It was established with a mission of providing families of young people with disabilities, who are struggling to find therapeutic support, with holistic interventions in a fun and welcoming environment.
The founders, four local uni students, drew inspiration from a little girl with cerebral palsy who wanted to learn to dance but couldn’t find a place that could help her fulfil her dream and provide her with that sense of belonging.
Since its founding in 2013, the local business has thrived and overcome challenges along the way including COVID-19. And to celebrate its success despite difficulties and the launching of its new purpose-built hub, an open day launch event has been set for 8 April. The event will also showcase Active Eight’s range of paediatric therapy and group programs on offer.
A range of activities await attendees including live performances from Active Eight’s very own dance and cheerleading troupes, arts and craft workshops, and tennis and play warrior demonstrations. Goodie bags and free tea and coffee will be provided as part of the celebrations.
“We are thrilled to be launching our High Street Hub,” Active Eight CEO Zachary Fook said.
“In opening our doors for all to come and experience what’s on offer we hope to inspire a new standard of paediatric services here in Brisbane. If the outcome of the launch event is that even one family finds their tribe at Active Eight, then the day will be an absolute success!”
Active Eight’s holistic and multi-disciplinary offerings include six therapy disciplines – from psychology and speech therapy to ballet and martial arts – with more than 40 weekly inclusive programs delivered by a team of 50 plus skilled professionals.
The “Active Eight Day” will be held at the new hub located on the ground floor of Active Eight’s facility at 67 High Street. The celebration will begin with a VIP event and ribbon-cutting ceremony at 12 pm and will then be opened to the public from 1 pm to 4 pm.
