BMD Regional Manager, Richie Ward said the company was proud to contribute to the development of a young athlete from the Territory, where the company has had a strong presence in construction and urban development industries for more than 20 years.
“We’re very pleased to support Sport Access Foundation to offer this fantastic opportunity to a young Territorian to help realise their sporting ambitions,” he said. “Living in the Territory with its geographical distance from the rest of Australia can mean athletes face additional challenges, so it’s important that initiatives such as this give every opportunity for participation in sport and its recognised benefits.”
“BMD’s sponsorship of the Sport Access Foundation grant reaffirms our commitment to supporting the local communities in which we operate, and builds on the support provided to over 20 sporting groups and community organisations since we began operating in the Top End in 1997,” he said.
The Sport Access Foundation is also strongly backed by BlueScope, which is also a founding partner and proud supporter of its ethos of equality and achievement for young Australians with a disability.
Applications for the grants open on Friday 23 March and close on Friday 29 June.
