Olympian set to address Night of Opportunity

OLYMPIAN Julie McDonald OAM knows what it takes to stride the world stage in business and in sport.

The Olympic bronze and Commonwealth gold medallist turned public speaker will be the first of many engaging and inspiring individuals to address the Rotary Club of Toowoomba South’s inaugural Night of Opportunity.

The evenings are expected to be held quarterly and each one will feature a different speaker.

The first will be held on Tuesday, October 6, at the Downs Club Toowoomba.

Julie McDonald held the Commonwealth Record for the 800m freestyle for 21 years, the longest standing record for any Australian.

Since retiring from the pool Julie has continued to do work with Drug Education for the Australian Olympic Committee and fundraising for charity, for which she received an OAM in 2006 for her hard work.

A passionate health champion, Julie continues to strive for ultimate health after being diagnosed with chlorine poisoning in 1996 and then a stage 2 melanoma in 1997.

An inspirational speaker, Julie can have the crowd laughing one moment and crying the next as she takes them on the road with her through her career.

Tickets to the evening are $40 a head will include dinner and dessert.

The evening will begin at 6pm and is expected to finish by 9pm.
