"This is our third year of grant support for the Pathway to Paralympic grant. We’ve had the wonderful opportunity now to contribute to the growth of several young Sport Access Foundation recipients, who are developing athletes and progressing to full time high performance athletes. These athletes have included Layla Sharp (Athletics track), Jack Howell (Triathlon), Cameron Jones (Kayak) and Abbie Peet (Athletics track). We work closely with our athletes to ensure they have access to the relevant nutrition and well-being coaching, tools and resources to realise their development and paralympic potential. We look forward to working again with the athlete." - Alicia Edge, Founder / Co-CEO & Director, Compeat Performance.
