The Fifth Annual Costin Roe Consulting Charity Golf Day is to be held on Wednesday 3 December 2014 at the Avondale Golf Club, Avon Road, Pymble, New South Wales.
The event will commence with a light sandwich lunch and registration from 11:30am, followed by a shotgun start at 1:00pm. The day will conclude with drinks, dinner and presentations from 6:00pm. Non-players are welcomed to attend the drinks and dinner.
All proceeds for the day will benefit Wheelchair Sports NSW, an organisation committed to enriching the lives of paraplegics and quadraplegics through helping to support their participation in sporting activities.
Keegan Oh-Chee to be guest speaker at dinner
“We are delighted to have representatives from Wheelchair Sports NSW joining us, including Keegan Oh-Chee, our dinner guest speaker, who is currently ranked Number 3 in Australian Wheelchair Tennis,” said Wayne Costin, founding director of Costin Roe Consulting, who along with associate director and structural engineer, Phil Terrey, is one of the firm’s keenest recreational golfing enthusiasts.
For many years Costin Roe Consulting has been a strong corporate philanthropist and fundraising supporter of several charitable organisations. However, in 2014 the cause of Wheelchair Sports developed particular resonance for director, Grant Roe, now in the final stages of rehabilitative recovery following a serious cycling accident during recent race warm-ups in northern Europe.
“It was eight days after the accident before I could leave an Italian hospital by wheelchair to make the return journey to Australia. I was in a wheelchair here for weeks, reliant upon disability access points to navigate my way around work duties, and I’m still having to use crutches occasionally while I slowly start to resume training. Fortunately my accident did not involve a spinal injury, but my short-term experience as a wheelchair-bound athlete and executive really highlighted to me, in an intensely personal way, the importance of work being done by organisations like Wheelchair Sports. Spinal injuries can happen to even the fittest and most unsuspecting, and with the insights I’ve gained recently, I can only encourage everyone associated with Costin Roe Consulting to give generously to our appeal for donations to Wheelchair Sports NSW,” said Grant.
Propex Concrete Systems have kindly offered to sponsor one of the holes “nearest to the pin”. Costin Roe Consulting is inviting other players and supporters to help raise more funds by sponsoring other holes.
