ANZ, the Rotary Club and The Personnel Group would like to invite you to a special event featuring Paralympian, Gold medalist and current Australian Open Champion Dylan Alcott OAM.

Dylan will be speaking on overcoming adversity and becoming your best self, with all profits from the event going directly to the Rotary Club of Wodonga West’s Annual Bogong Youth Leadership Camp.

Matt Burke, secretary and event organiser, encouraged people to come along, stating, “not often do we, in this region, get a high caliber sports person like a gold medal Olympian in Dylan Alcott OAM.”

Matt explained that the Bogong Youth Leadership weekend camp is for 45 year 5/6 children from Wodonga and district primary schools.

Participants are selected by the schools on the criteria that, whilst they do not necessarily hold any positions of leadership, show the potential to do so with the appropriate training and encouragement. Many of these students are from low socio-economic and disadvantaged backgrounds.

The camp provides children with the opportunity to participate in indoor and outdoor activities that will increase self-esteem, resilience, problem solving and leadership.

So to hear from one of the most inspiring Australian sports stars today, and to support a great cause, head to for your ticket now!
