The RDA has nearly 500 centres nationwide, and provides activities such as horse riding and skills development for children and adults with physical and learning disabilities.
Warrenwood group chairman David Carter hailed the day as "brilliant" and said Essendon has always supported the group, with many volunteers drawn from the area.
