The year in review

2015 in Review

As 2015 draws to a close and we embark on 2016, we reflect on the year that has been.

Fair Game grew to have over 100 volunteers in Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria. These volunteers spent Wednesday afternoons running Game On! and Healthy Communities programs in Perth and went on about 20 trips to the Mid-West, Pilbara, Kimberley and, for the first time, the Northern Territory. The Recycle and Donate program have continued to have an outstanding response from the public in 2015 with people of all ages and walks of life, from individuals to schools such as Byford and Freshwater Bay Primary Schools, contributing hundreds of sporting equipment. These have been contributed to communities we have visited as well as to local not-for-profits providing services to other communities, such as Ladder WA and St Vincent de Paul. Finally, in 2015, John van Bockxmeer became one of the JCI’s Top 10 Outstanding Young Persons in the World in Medical Innovation for his work with Fair Game.

These are just some of our highlights for 2015! For a detailed summary, check out our Annual Report here.

We are grateful for the support we have received in 2015 and look forward to continuing to inspire healthy communities in 2016.
