From Our Founder

Apart from competing in Triathlons, my key focus over the last year has been to establish Sport Access Foundation to enable kids who have a disability access to sport by removing barriers and creating opportunities for participation.

Join me in working towards getting more Aussie kids with a disability into sport.
