The donation was presented to SAF Founder, Katie Kelly OAM at a special event in Sydney.
"We’re incredibly proud of Katie and delighted to support her on her quest to represent Australia at Tokyo 2020. We’re also proud of the work of Katie and SAF are doing to assist the next generation of Paralympians. The PICA Group proudly support an inclusive and diverse workplace, so it makes sense that we promote this more broadly in the community via activities such as SAF. We encourage all companies to dig deep and help Sport Access Foundation support our young Australians living with a disability to access sport."
Katie attended The PICA Group event along with her Coach, Triathlon Australia's High Performance Coach Dan Atkins and fellow Sport Access Foundation Director, and brother Matthew Kelly.
“PICA Group’s generous donation of $10,000 for Sport Access Foundation, in addition to their personal support of me reinforces their values of their diversity and inclusive charter and philosophies. On behalf of the Sport Access Foundation board, thank you to The PICA Group Board, Leadership team led by CEO Greg Nash and to all their staff across Australia for their outstanding support and generosity. PICA Group have been with me from the day I began competing in Paratriathlon at the elite level with a goal of qualifying for the 2016 Rio Paralympics. Their support is indicative of the company they are. They had no expectations other than to ensure I had the support I needed to represent Australia and compete in Paratriathlon at its debut at a Paralympics.
“They continue to support me in my quest for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, an incredibly challenging task and I still have a long way to go to prepare and to qualify."
