World and Commonwealth champion Kelsey-Lee Barber will be going back to grassroots at Redcliffe Little Athletics on Friday.
Barber, who won javelin gold at the world titles in Eugene and Birmingham Commonwealth Games this year, will be hoping to inspire the next generation of athletes.
Denny, who threw a personal best 67.26m in Birmingham to take gold, is one of the top athletes visiting 45 clubs as part of the Coles Community Round.
Others in this region include para athlete Corey Anderson, who was at Bribie Island on Friday and Kelsey-Lee Barber in Redcliffe this Friday.
The visits coincide with Coles’ commitment to Little Athletics Australia for a further three seasons.
“Little Athletics is at the heart of communities across Australia and inspires kids to keep active and stay healthy,” Coles General Manager Corporate Affairs & Indigenous Affairs Sally Fielke said.
“Coles Community Round has become one of the highlights of our partnership and our team members love getting involved in their local community by cooking barbecues, raking long jump pits and helping across the events.”
Coles Little Athletics Australia CEO Myles Forman said Coles Community Round has become a feature of the Little Athletics calendar since it was first introduced two years ago.
“The round really brings out the ‘fun’ in our ‘fun, family and fitness’ motto and it’s great to see centres get behind the Coles theme with food, costumes, and different types of activities for the day,” he said.
