Skiing for Disabled Winter Sports Australia
On the 27th of August I will be competing in the 21km Australian Birkebeiner - A gruelling course consisting of plenty of uphill challenges. Skiing is something I've always done as a family activity. Last year I managed to rope my father, Patrick Fiddes into doing the 7km race with me. And this year Dad & I have roped my sister, Sonya Fiddes into competing in the 7km race ! As an avid skiers, we Fiddes' feel passionate about providing everyone, irrespective of disability, a chance at enjoying or competing in the sport that has been such an instrumental part of our family's lives. Last year Dad became a volunteer Guide for Disabled Wintersports Australia. This inspired me to suggest that this year Dad, Sonya & I complete this challenging ski race in aid of Disabled Wintersports Australia.
DWAs mission is “To promote and foster the advancement of participation by people with a disability in wintersport both in Australia and overseas”. And to encourage “The equality of opportunity for people with disabilities to participate at all levels in the winter sport of their choice.” www.disabledwintersport.com.au
