The 2019 Annual Wheelchair Sports Charity Luncheon was held at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf last Friday. A group of Stacks Goudkamp lawyers and senior staff were pleased to attend and support this wonderful charity.
Wheelchair Sports NSW was formed in 1961 and is a charitable organisation. Wheelchair Sports NSW hosts a series of international, national and local sporting competitions in various sports each year, as well as providing subsidised access for members to attend other events interstate and internationally.
The MC on the day, Stephanie Brantz, was joined by guest speakers, Rod Macqueen AM and NSW Rugby Coach, Liesl Tesch AM, BSc, MP and 7 x Paralympian and NSW MP, Brad Fittler, NSW Blues Coach and former Captain and Madison de Rozario, World Champion and Paralympian in road racing.
We also heard from the amazing Louise Sauvage OAM, one of our most renowned paralympic wheelchair racers and a leading coach.
Each year the Wheelchair Charity Luncheon raises much needed funds to provide sporting equipment and wheelchairs to encourage those living with disabilities to participate in sport.
We continue to be proud of our association with WSNSW and look forward to the 2020 Stacks Goudkamp Charity Golf Day at the beautiful St Michaels Golf Club.
