GRAEME Innes might be blind but that isn’t stopping him from taking part in the Amazing Chase.
The Disability Discrimination Commissioner, together with journalist and radio broadcaster Julie McCrossin, are taking part in a fundraising initiative for the Croydon-based disability organisation FRANS this Saturday.
“Some of the most innovative programs that FRANS provide, have become best practice models within the sector and have empowered many people with a disability to achieve a level of independence they would not have thought possible,” Mr Innes said. The Amazing Chase will see teams face a range of challenges in various locations through the Inner West, testing their mental and physical skills.
Ms McCrossin, who is patron of FRANS, said the organisation cares about every individual they support and helps people with disabilities to work, have a social life, make friends and enjoy life.
In the lead up to the Chase, teams are fundraising for FRANS and for pole position at the starting line.
