Let's get Anna to the 2019 Special Olympics -
World Summer Games held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Tickets $60 available from the Boatshed
$20 per ticket kindly donated to Anna

Anna Leighton is 18 years old and attends the Ballarat Specialist School. Anna loves to swim competitively and it would seem she cannot be stopped in the pool!

'Anna Leighton has returned from the Special Olympics Australia National Games in Adelaide with a haul of gold, silver and bronze medals. Anna led the way in the pool with three division one medals, gold in the 100m breaststroke and 100m backstroke, and silver in the 100m freestyle.' - The Courier

Anna’s next goal is to compete in the 2019 Special Olympics- 2019 World Summer Games held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, in March 2019. However, Anna is going to need some assistance to make this dream come true. This dream requires Anna and her Dad Jim who will accompany Anna as her carer to get to Abu Dhabi in order for Anna compete. The costs of flights, travelling, time off work for Anna’s Dad Jim, will be a huge strain on the family.

It is our goal to assist Anna in reaching her dreams by raising funds to send Anna and Jim to the 2019 Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi.

If you cannot attend on the night & would love to donate to help Anna please visit her Go Fund Me page  or if you wish to assist in the form of donations items for the evening please contact Clare on 0419 002 027 or Christine 0429 024 542.
