Date: 20 March 2019 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM
Location: Hyatt Regency, Perth

Come join Business Women Australia and Special Olympics Australia for the Inspirational Women’s Breakfast 2019, celebrating inspirational and empowering Perth women!

Business Women Australia Director Lyn Hawkins has been invited to speak alongside Stacey Marinkovich (Head Coach for West Coast Fever), and Dana Hooker (AFLW Player, Fremantle Doctors Football Club). It is set to be a truly inspirational  morning!

The Special Olympics Australia network provides weekly sports training and regular competition for people with intellectual disability. Through sport, all people learn the skills and build the confidence that can help them achieve their personal best in sport and in life. The power of Special Olympics Australia to inspire hope, confidence and courage is brilliant, with an impressive track record for changing the lives of athletes with intellectual disabilities and also the coaches, families, volunteers and others who have the opportunity to take part.

Special Olympics Australia is part of a global sporting community for people with an intellectual disability. It grew from a backyard camp into a global movement over 50 years. The global sporting community was pioneered by the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister to US President John F Kennedy as well as Rosemary who had an intellectual disability.

Today, Special Olympics supports over 5 million athletes in 177 countries. .

In April this year almost 1,000 athletes with an intellectual disability competed in 11 sports in Adelaide at the Special Olympics Australia National Games 2018.

With 600,000 Australians living with an intellectual disability and only 3,000 athletes participating with Special Olympics Australia it is really important to support the work of Special Olympics to increase the reach and to spread the joy of sport and community.
