In early June 2023, the Australian Boomerangs and Australian Pearls will wing their way to Vichy, France to compete in the 6th VIRTUS Global Games.

The VIRTUS Global Games is the world’s largest elite sports event for athletes with an intellectual impairment. The 6th Games will see thousands of athletes from Europe, America, Asia, Africa, and Oceania perform across ten main sports.

As you would expect, costs for athletes to attend the VIRTUS Games are considerable, so both the Pearls and the Boomerangs are raising funds to support their 2023 campaign.

You can help our athletes – Louwanna Sheridan, Jasmin Funnell and Madi Janssen (Australian Pearls), Shane Koenig and James Doyle (Australian Boomerangs) – achieve their dreams by making a tax-deductible donation at the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) or by scanning the QR Code (in the poster below)…

(To ensure all donations are directed to the Pearls or the Boomerangs, please add which team you are supporting (ie “Pearls Team”/”Boomerang Team” or “Pearls” /”Boomerangs” and an individual player’s name to the supporters comments)
