Michael Crossland is an extraordinary young man who has defied the odds of a life threatening cancer to build a life of exceptional achievements. An accomplished businessman and an elite sportsman, his life is a remarkable success.
At age 17 Glen, a champion athlete, was struck by an illness that quickly ended his Olympic dreams and sporting career. He triumphed over every challenge, and shifted his focus to community development. His efforts were soon recognised nationally as Young Australian of the Year for Queensland, Community Service.
23-year-old blind surfer, Derek Rabelo is one of the most inspiring young sportsmen alive today.
Derek’s courage and skill captured the imagination of young people around the world following this year’s release of the movie Beyond Sight (www.beyondsightmovie.com) which chronicles his amazing quest to surf the massive waves of Pipeline, Hawaii.
