Twelve months ago my family and I embarked on the most ambitious, challenging and exciting project of our lives. This Friday and Saturday it all comes to a climactic end with the 50 Sports in 50 Weeks Grande Finale weekend.
Friday Oct 16 (my 51st birthday) we host a massive multi-sports day at Ben’s School (Coombabah Primary) with over 25 sensational sporting mentors including Natalie Cook OAM, Simon Leitch, Fiona and Mel Cameron and many more.Then on Saturday a finale party for invited guests to thank everyone who has helped make this once in a lifetime journey a reality. We will also preview a world-first video sizzler of our 50sports documentary that will simply amaze.
To everyone out there that has supported our mission we say a huge Thank you. Together we have made a real difference to the lives of tens of thousands of kids and their grown-ups. Many of them will make better choices and grow up healthier and happier thanks to our direct intervention, education and motivation.
I am personally extremely proud of my wife Jacqui and son Ben for taking on this project with me and seeing it all the way to the end, in spite of many difficulties and sacrifices http://50sports.org/. I love them both above all and we have all grown closer and wiser as a result and above all have an ever greater appreciation of how important our good health and is and how lucky we are to be Australians.
Yours in health and fitness
