The athletes, coaches, and staff at the Hancock Prospecting Women’s National Training Centre (WNTC) in Penrith, NSW, recently used their Club Day to show how Rowing Australia is bringing Australian High Performance sport's commitment to Win Well to life.
All the athletes proudly donned their club zooties to recognise and celebrate where their sporting journey began and the people who have supported them along the way.
Club Day also provided an opportunity to express gratitude and care to the wider community and in 2023, athletes, coaches and performance staff were humbled to support The Girls Refuge.
The vision of The Girls Refuge is to strive for a future where all women and girls live safe, stable and fulfilling lives.
Cindi Petersen the CEO of The Girls Refuge recently spoke to the athletes about the life changing work her team does and as co-captain Lucy Stephan presented Cindi a cheque for $3220 there was a real sense that not only had the fundraising efforts at the NTC promoted positive social change in the community, the athletes were inspired and empowered for their journey to national selection trials and beyond to Paris.
