HAPPYWHENFIT YOUTH HEALTH AMBASSADOR AWARD 2019

 

What is the HappyWhenFit Health Ambassador Award?

The Happywhenfit Youth Health Ambassador Award recognises a young female and male aged between 12-18 years, who are demonstrating outstanding personal health commitment by combining a variety of fitness, nutrition and mental health promoting behaviours for a holistic picture of wellbeing. They are a positive role model to other young people, actively living, promoting and raising awareness around a healthy lifestyle. It is a young person committed to their own personal growth who demonstrates this by continually working towards goals that improve their health outcomes.

HOW CAN I LEARN MORE?

Young people aged 12-18 years can nominate themselves or be nominated by any member of the community. A male and female representative will be chosen, sharing in more than $1000 worth of locally-sponsored prizes.
The winners will be notified at the end of the judging period and invited to attend the award presentation ceremony, where they will be formally recognised.

Nomination dates for 2020 will be announced soon!

CORY CROMBIE

Cory Crombie is a school student, para-athlete and an active member of the community. He is striving towards his goals of being successful in sport and also influencing others in a positive direction.

Cory is an outgoing 16 year old from Bunbury, Western Australia.
Cory had a BMX accident in Dec 2017 when he was 14 years old which left him with a Spinal Cord Injury. His whole thought process with his recovery has be amazing. Getting back into sports has been his whole aim and help to keep him happy.
Cory loves hanging out with his mates and going for runs in his Race wheelchair. He has big goals to represent Australia at the Paralympics.

Cory is passionate about being healthy as he believes it has made it easier to get through his accident and recovery. Looking after yourself is a huge part of helping you feel better and happy says Cory.

As the HappyWhenFit Youth Health Ambassador, Cory hopes to help encourage others to start being healthy and
maintain it so they can lead a happy and healthy life. He hopes to do this by continuing to be a healthy role model and sharing his story so that people can recognise the strength he has gained by keeping a positive mind-set, eating a healthy diet and staying active, even through the challenges his injury has made him face.
