Inspiration from the Special Olympics at our yearly fundraising breakfast!

       

dVT Group have been working with Special Olympics Australia since 2005 across various events.  Suelen McCallum, partner at the dVT Group, is always keen to give back to the community and has been the chair of the Inspirational Women’s Breakfast committee since it’s inception in 2012.

This year we had another successful Special Olympics Inspirational Women’s Breakfast held on 7 March 2018 at the QVB Tea Rooms, which was sold out early.  It was truly inspiring as we heard from our guest speakers Kate McClymont (Investigative Journalist, SMH), Mary Coustas (Writer/Performer well known as Effie), Ming Long (Business woman, Property Pioneer & Advocate for Male Champions of Change and Board Diversity).

One of the highlights was when Mel, one of the Special Olympic athletes, asked us all to verbalise out loud the Special Olympics pledge….. “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

Our special thanks goes to everyone who supports Special Olympics and we are happy to have raised over $27,000 for the athletes from this breakfast.
