Welcome

Sporting Dreams was started by triple Paralympian Marayke Jonkers to help Queensland athletes with physical disabilities achieve their sporting dreams. We provide funding grants to help purchase equipment like race wheelchairs or hand cycles, even prosthetic limbs for running or cycling. We also help with training and competition costs. Since starting in 2008 we have given over 130 grants to athletes.
