Fair Game is an innovative health promotion and community development charity that donates recycled sports equipment and uses it to deliver unique fitness, health and wellness programs to underserviced communities in need. Fair Game's unique integrated approach and capacity building initiatives reduce rates of communicable diseases and lifestyle related illness, improve mental wellbeing and build social cohesion.
Fair Game's vision is to allow all Australians access to the benefits of healthy choices through recycled sports equipment.
By 2016 the charity had facilitated the donation of more than 20,000 sports items (from exercise equipment to balls and bats) and counts almost 200 volunteers among its team of ‘Fair Gamers’. Together they deliver team sporting events, dance, yoga and pilates programs, fitness challenges, as well as provide interactive health education sessions for five to 15 year olds. Small groups of Fair Gamers head out on road trips 30 to 40 times a year, visiting young people across the state in the remote and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities where they live.
