BMD spreads Christmas cheer to young Australian athletes with disabilities

BMD is proud to support Sport Access Foundation’s Christmas campaign which will see $50 raised for each 96 young athletes who applied for a Sport Access Foundation grant in 2018. As well as providing a $50 gift, the Foundation is aiming to raise awareness of the support these young athletes, and their families, need to achieve their sporting dreams. Over 25 days, Sport Access Foundation is sharing the story of a number of applicants on social media and will provide information about their sporting career to date, and the challenges they face as they strive to achieve their very best. The Christmas campaign builds on BMD’s existing relationship with Sport Access Foundation which began earlier this year following BMD’s funding of a $2,000 grant which was awarded to an Indigenous youth with a disability residing in the Northern Territory. The BMD Grant was awarded to Kaitlyn, a 15-year-old-para-swimming athlete from Darwin in September. Katie Kelly, Sport Access Foundation Founder and Chairperson thanked BMD for their support during 2018. “The $2000 grant will help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander athlete Kaitlyn achieve her swimming goals,” she said. “Thank you to BMD for helping Sport Access Foundation support young Australian athletes with disabilities.” To support Sport Access Foundation’s Christmas campaign and assist in raising the money required to provide each applicant with $50, you can make a donation by visiting the Australian Sports Foundation website. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. For more information about Sport Access Foundation, visit their website.
