Courage Awards 2016

Jordan
"Jordan and his family demonstrated incredible courage during an impossibly difficult time. They put their courage into action through determination, perseverance, and unlimited belief in, and love for one another. Jordan overcame incredible obstacles both metaphorically and literally in the summer of 2016 when he participated in the "Tough Mudder” competition with friends and family by his side. In our opinion, they are all tough mudders!"
- Janice, Don, Trina, Lara, Darrell & Team

Liam
"Liam - honestly we often forget that you are six! You are so willing to try all our ideas and you try so hard. You have mastered saying so much with just a quick glance and genuine smile.

- Bonnie-Lynn, Tanya, Corinne, Bruce, Elaine, Janelle, Kate, Nicola, Therese, Erin, Diane, Terra, Lori, Kim, Brenda, Rob & Team

Melanie, we are inspired and very excited to see you honoured today."
- Catherine, Andrew, Sally, Pamela & Team
