An extraordinary sports group for children launched in Wollongong on Monday.
Woonona mum Renee Binskin, Sian Napper and physiotherapist Suzy Lock have led the charge to establish a frame running group for children with mobility challenges in the Illawarra for months.
Seeing their hard work pay off was "amazing".
"We had 12 kids in total turn up," she said.
"It was just really heartwarming. The kids absolutely loved it. The big smiles, running around, racing each other and making friends - everybody was there to see the joy in the children and that's what happened."
A three-wheeled trike, called a frame runner, gives kids who have difficulty walking the ability to run with ease. Renee's son Ashton said his favourite part was playing hot potato.
"He loves when he gets to make friends, and everyone is so encouraging," she said. "The community has been amazing - in person and on social media."
Frame Running Wollongong also has a tutu-clad exercise physiologist to help the children learn and have fun. "She's made for the job," Renee said.
Siblings are also invited, and can take part in play sessions. The group will run every Monday from 4pm-5pm during the school term at the University of Wollongong Sports Hub. If you would like to join contact Frame Running Wollongong on Facebook or Instagram.
