Twelve-year-old Mason Ollerenshaw dreams of becoming a Paralympian in soccer or wheelchair basketball. He took a step closer to achieving that dream when he was awarded an introductory grant by the Sporting Dreams foundation.

Mason’s mum Melinda said the grant money would be used to attend Junior development program camps, where Mason will meet other young athletes with disabilities and receive expert coaching as well as advice on areas such as sport psychology and nutrition.

Mason, who has mild cerebral Palsy, lives at Acacia Ridge and his next goal is to represent Queensland in CP football with his ultimate goal to represent Australia. Mason is also a keen wheelchair basketball player and shows potential in this sport. A boy with great determination no dream is too big for him to fulfil.
