Paralympic gold and silver medallist Kelly Cartwright, will be special guest at Portland District Health’s 2019 charity golf event next year.
Held on March 1st next year, the inspirational track star will be on hand to present prizes and will deliver a talk about her journey at a special dinner.
A cancer survivor, as well as winning everything in front of her as a para-athlete, Cartwright was named the 2012 athlete of the year- the first Paralympian to be given such an honour in Australia.
Portland District Health has raised more than $120,000 from the previous six golf events. This money is always dedicated to specific medical equipment to enhance services to the community.
The 2019 event will raise money to replace three defibrillators at $16,000 each.
