Adam Thompson: Westfield Local Heroes 2018
Adam knocks down invisible barriers to get at-risk teens off to a good start
The $10,000 Westfield Local Heroes grant has enabled Adam to set up a Ninja Warrior Program for Youth at the PCYC YOUTH Club. The funds have enabled the club to buy equipment to get the Ninja Warrior program underway which has been a huge success!
"The impact has been enormous. In our first week we had a dozen young people attend. By the final week of the school term we had over 30 participants, a cross section of volunteers and mentors from all over the community, and the knowledge that all the young people who are coming to the program, are getting exercise, a healthy breakfast and getting to school on time.
By virtue of establishing this program and it being a huge success, we have had a great amount of community engagement. I am excited about now us being about to spread the word about the program in 2019".
