About the project
Bridget Anderson and Simon Uppill are again part of the Australian Team for the World Orienteering Championships. This is a great opportunity for them to compete at the highest level of international orienteering and help enhance Australia's reputation as orienteers. They have both trained very hard to enable them to compete at the highest level and they are great role models and contributors to the sport so please support them. Similarly Dante Afnan, Angus Haines, and Joanna George also have an opportunity to represent Australia at the junior elite level by representing Australia at the 2019 Junior World Orienteering Championships. While Orienteering Australia pays for some of their expenses to attend WOC/JWOC they need to fund their own airfares and contribute toward uniforms and on-ground costs. Together with costs of attending selection races each team member probably contributes over $3000 themselves. WOC/JWOC is an annual event so these costs have to be found each year.
