About The Foundation
Nicole Fitzsimons was an inspiring, talented dancer and devoted footy fan with an infectious love of life. Anyone who was lucky enough to spend time with her was a better person for that experience.
At twenty-four years young, Nicole was on the brink of achieving her dream as a sports journalist with channel 9, before her life was tragically taken in a motorbike accident whilst holidaying in Thailand, October 2012.
The Nicole Fitzsimons Foundation has been established in her honour to continue Nicole’s legacy of helping others to fulfil their life aspirations. Your kind donation will contribute directly to passionate and gifted performing artists and sportspeople who really need assistance in reaching their full potential.
Another integral part of The Foundation is raising awareness of travel safety overseas among young Australian tourists, with a focus on the dangers of riding motorbikes in foreign countries & the importance of purchasing travel insurance before embarking on any holiday. By raising awareness of these fatal risks through presentations at local schools and community clubs, the Fitzsimons Family hopes to save other innocent families from suffering the heart ache of losing a love one to this senseless tragedy.
The Nicole Fitzimons Foundation is a charity registered with ACNC. – ABN 61161 928 829
Do you know of someone who is a naturally gifted performer, or a passionate rising star in the sporting field, yet is struggling financially to make their dreams come true? Is there a trip overseas for a competition that they simply cannot afford? Or a scholarship to a special school to advance their talents that is just out of their reach? This is where The Nicole Fitzsimons Foundation would love to help.
The Nicole Fitzsimons Foundation is dedicated to offering financial assistance to performers & sports people who have passion and drive but not the means to achieve their dreams. We are looking for people, aged 16-25, who possess Nicole’s vivacious spirit & undying commitment towards making their dreams a reality. We are particularly interested in helping those who have overcome hardship themselves or who are in circumstances that may be holding them back from their full potential.
