The Rotary Club of Mount Gambier Lakes has donated $3,000 from the proceeds of the 2022 OneFortyOne Blue Lake Fun Run to financially disadvantaged junior sports people through the Junior Sports Assistance Fund.
City of Mount Gambier Junior Sports Assistance Fund Presiding Member Cr Josh Lynagh said the club aims to assist financially disadvantaged junior sports people with the costs of participation in their chosen sport.
The Junior Sports Assistance Fund and its member organisations are appreciative of the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier Lakes for this funding initiative which will help to provide meaningful assistance to juniors who have the desire to participate in their chosen sport but may not be able to achieve this for a variety of reasons.

The donation will go towards the Junior Sports Assistance Fund’s 2023 applications.
"It was agreed with the Rotary Club of Mount Gambier Lakes that the Junior Sports Assistance Fund Committee would provide the confidential administration processes to identify worthy recipients from our member organisations who could receive financial assistance for a financially disadvantaged junior and to determine the eligible recipients," Cr Josh Lynagh said.
At the committee meeting held on 21 June 2023, the following donations were approved:
“A further round of funding will be advertised in October to support member organisations operating over the summer months,” Cr Lynagh said.
