Special Olympics – golfers in Athens

Help golfers with an intellectual disability represent Australia in June 2011, 131 athletes with an intellectual disability will represent Australia at the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Athens. The World Games will be the largest sporting event in the world this year with 7500 athletes from 185 countries competing in 22 sports. This includes seven Australian athletes competing in golf. As Special Olympics Australia is a tax-exempt charity and receives little government funding, the organisation must fundraise $10,000 per athlete to get them to the Games. The NSW Golf Foundation have financially assisted the three NSW golfers and we re hoping you can support their ongoing fundraising efforts. If you d like to help the Special Olympics golfers achieve their personal best at the Games, get your friends and head to the Special Olympics Golf Day fundraiser to be held at Kooindah Waters Golf Club on the NSW Central Coast on Friday 29 April.
