Cricket Australia has teamed up with seven-time world surfing champion Layne Beachley’s Aim for the Stars Foundation to offer female cricketers a scholarship to support their development.
In recognition of where it all started in her quest to win a world championship, Layne Beachley, through her foundation “Aim For The Stars” and with the generous support of the local arm of Clubs NSW, has announced the Layne Beachley Foundation Scholarship for 2016.
This is a special scholarship open to all *girls and women in the Northern Beaches area who are looking for that extra financial support to achieve their goal in a chosen field of pursuit in any of the 2016 scholarship categories. These include: Academia and Education, Arts and Entertainment, Business and Leadership, Culture and Community Development, Environment and Sustainability, Science and Technology, and Sport.
Sea Eagles half-back Daly Cherry-Evans has combined with Layne Beachley to help promote the former world champion’s Aim for the Stars Foundation.
A seven time world surfing champion, Beachley will be at Brookvale Oval this Sunday for the match against Parramatta Eels with the Sea Eagles proud to support her foundation.
Beachley and a team of volunteers will be wearing purple ‘Aim for the Stars’ t-shirts when selling raffle tickets at Brookvale Oval. Tickets are available for a donation $5 each or 5 for $20 and drawn on the day.
First draw: Surfboard signed by Layne Beachley from her private collection.
Second draw: A training kit from Daly Cherry-Evans. The kit contains a signed pair of game worn boots and Manly, Qld and Australian team training gear.
Congratulations to all our 2015 Scholarship winners who were able to join us in Sydney for a 2-Day Mentoring Workshop which included a surfing lesson with Layne Beachley followed by a huge mug of hot chocolate! The girls had a massive 2-Day program including; mentoring workshop with Layne, a motivational goal setting morning with Nikki Moore and Holly Ransom, as well as a yoga inner -direction experience to set the intention for the day.
