To be recognised and considered for the Sporting Dreams Grant, having already received an introductory grant in 2012, and now a Developmental Athletes Grant in 2014 is an honour and a privilege. I am thankful for organisations such as the Sporting Dreams. lf it was not for such associations that exist and care for disabled athletes they would never achieve their goals and dreams. There are many disabled athletes just as deserving as me and I thank you kindly especially Marayake Jonkers, you will always be an inspiration and a legend in my eyes.

Sporting Dreams helps inspire athletes by supporting and acknowledging disabled athletes aspirations. Attending the Ceremony showed me how many marvelous people there are striving to achieve their own personal goal. Sporting Dreams is important because it encourages you and helps you to chase your dream. I have competed in the State and National RDA (Riding for the Disabled ) championships this year. My Sporting Dreams grant enabled me to pay the entry fees for my horse riding competitions. Sporting dreams is important because it encourages you and helps you to chase your dream. Sporting Dreams helps inspire athletes by supporting and acknowledging disabled athletes aspirations.

“Sporting Dreams has been a great help to my family and I because they have provided money which has been very useful towards my sporting career travelling for big events, such as Nationals. I believe Sporting Dreams is important because it provides opportunities for young athletes to do what they desire. After my Sporting Dreams grant, I have achieved School Sport Australia National age champion 2 years in a row. I would like to thank Sporting Dreams for giving me the grant so I have been able to go on to achieve such amazing goals and opportunities.” Noah Robinson & Mum Sharon

So proud of Lakeisha Patterson whose nickname might be lucky but put a lot of hard work in two achieve results like these two gold medals- One of which is extra special because she was swimming up a classification against athletes with more physical ability than her. I first met lucky over four years ago when she was heading to her first Commonwealth games in Glasgow as a reserve after an athlete pulled out sick and came away with a bronze medal! Since then she’s sent well cemented her place on the Australian Dolphins Swim Team with world records Paralympic medals for the Australian Paralympic Team at the rio Paralympic Games and now Dual Commonwealth gold medals. Lucky isn’t just a star in the pool she studies hard teaches children to swim, has just started university and has the kindest heart sharing her medals tonight with children and the community . A genuinely wonderful role model 😊🥇🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺 ps loving the green gold nails #Matching finger nails ...
