Help Josh take on the world at YOG

Don't we all dream of going to the Olympics!?  Josh Ferris has spent the last few years training hard to make this dream come true.  In New Zealand over the weekend (25 March 2018), he won the selection race to represent Australia in Triathlon at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Buenos Aires, Argentina later this year.  Australia sends only one male and one female triathlete (born in 2001 or 2002).  The Summer YOG's are also only held every 4 years.

The good news - Josh has made the team.

The challenge - this trip is going to cost upwards of $10,000 (Josh's support crew will travel with him).

For those of you who know Josh (and for those of you who don't) this young man fully embraces the three Olympic values of respect, friendship and excellence. 

Athletes need to fully fund their own costs.  We are going to send this message wide and far with the aim of getting small amounts from many.  Any level of contribution would be deeply appreciated (it's amazing how quickly 100x$15 adds up).

If we can help get Josh and his crew to Argentina we know he will give his utmost and represent Australia with honour.
