ROAD TO TAOYUAN AND BACK AGAIN - Support the Goannas get to the Asia Pacific Deaf Games
As many Australian representatives in any sport will attest to, a big part of playing in the Green and Gold includes fundraising and seeking financial or in-kind donations to aid in getting themselves to an international tournament.
It is no different, and perhaps a lot more challenging this time around - the Australian deaf mens basketball team, the Goannas are embarking on an ambitious and life-defining 4 months shortly - attending the World Deaf Basketball Championships in July 2015, and 4 months later, representing Australia at the Asia Pacific Deaf Games, both in Taoyuan, Chinese Taipei (Taiwan).
These opportunities do not come very often, and the team is seeking support from family, friends and acquaintances far and wide in raising funds for the team to attend the Asia Pacific Deaf Games, where the team are in a very strong position to do what has never been done before in Deaf Basketball Australia's history - win a GOLD!
There are a number of ways you can show your support of the Goannas on their quest for GOLD:
- Donate to their GoFundMe page and get updates on their progress towards the Asia Pacifics
- Come along to their Sportsmen's Night on 16th May 2015 that will feature a number of former AFL and NBL personalities plus some very desirable items being auctioned
- Follow their progress by liking the Australian Goannas Deaf Basketball Team page
Your support will be truly appreciated as the team of 15 ball on the road to Taoyuan!
