About the project

The Deaflympic Games are held every 4 years around the globe which brings together many elite deaf and hard of hearing athletes to compete in various sports. The Deaflympic Games have been held since 1924 and it is the second oldest multi sports event in the world.

Deaf Sports Australia is proud to be sending a national team to the 23rd Deaflympic Games that will be held in the beautiful city of Samsun, Turkey from 18 to 30 July 2017. We need your help in raising funds to ensure that all our team members have the opportunity to represent Australia with pride. The Australian Team does not receive full sponsorship support or funding from government hence the need to fundraise. We therefore rely on the generosity of the general public to support the Team's attendance at the upcoming Games.
