Q. Why did you decide to sign on as an ambassador of the Busselton Jetty Swim?

A. I really enjoy doing the Busselton Jetty Swim. I enjoy all the fun weekend activities offered. I always like meeting lots of swimmers and forming friendships with them over several years. I also want to encourage people with disabilities to join the swim and to meet new people as well.


It's been an honour in previous years to have the support and involvement of these exceptional people as our Event Ambassadors.

Q. Why did you decide to sign on as an ambassador of the Busselton Jetty Swim again?

A.  After being involved last year as an ambassador for the BJS I am really excited to again be a part of the action. The conditions last year brought out the best in the swimmers, highlighting their determination and perseverance despite terrible conditions to swim in. To see so many members of the community, both young and old, complete something so difficult in such a supportive environment is a major drawcard for me.
