Help for Harley

I've launched this campaign to raise funds to sponsor Harley, after hearing his story at a 2018 National Reconciliation Week event at work.

Harley Windsor is an elite pairs ice skater and Australia's first Indigenous Winter Olympian! Harley and his skating partner Katia are current junior world champions.

Harley is a young Aboriginal man, born and raised in western Sydney. Born to both Aboriginal parents. He is a descendant of the Ngemba Weilwan and Kamilaroi people of NSW.

Harley's passion and talent for ice skating is a labour of love, supported financially by his sister Sharon Windsor and other family members. Sharon is an incredible Indigenous business woman who selflessly works to better the lives of those in her family, community and other Indigenous communities in Australia.

While Harley's family is rich in love and culture, they are very limited in their ability to support him financially . He's only recently been able access funding from the Australian Winter Olympics committee to pay for coaching fees, travel and accommodation in preparation for the next Winter Olympics.

As an elite athlete in training for the 2022 Winter Olympics, he trains 6-8 hours a day and cannot work to support himself. He has no funding or sponsorship for basic living expenses - including food, petrol for his car to drive to training at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra and medical expenses. Harley has been so far unable to secure a sponsor to assist with these basic expenses, which is impacting his health and well-being and his ability to compete at an elite level.

Let's help Harley and relive the financial pressure on his family,  by giving him a small sponsorship boost! The funds raised will be used to purchase food and petrol, and to cover car and medical expenses.
