CAN Fund Testimonial:
In 2004 I traveled to Australia for a warm weather training camp which was critical as I later made the Paralympic team and came fifth in the 400M. The trip cost me $4000 and I had to go in to debt to do it. Two weeks after I returned from Australia I received money from the CAN Fund, more than enough to cover the training camp costs.

Best Result:
4th place, 2006 World Championships

Fun Facts:
I have been a drummer for twelve years
