In a significant stride towards fostering local sporting talent, 18-year-old wheelchair basketball player Eithan Leard has been named the latest beneficiary of the Carina Leagues Club’s Sporting Financial Assistance Program. As Leard competes at the national level, he plays a pivotal role in Australia’s qualification journey for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Carina Leagues Club has consistently demonstrated its commitment to supporting sports, contributing over $50,000 this financial year. This initiative aids more than 70 athletes in meeting the financial demands of participating in both national and international competitions.

With a rich history spanning over 50 years of supporting local athletes and organisations, Carina Leagues Club introduced the Sporting Financial Assistance Program to empower athletes, ensuring they can pursue excellence in their respective sports. The goal is to witness these athletes shine on the global stage, with aspirations for many to compete at the Brisbane Olympic Games in 2032.
