Women’s week­end a Hamo hit

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

LIFE can turn on a dime, whether it’s a chance en­counter, a stroke of luck or a mes­sage that in­spires.

And the amaz­ing quar­tet of am­bas­sadors for the Hamil­ton Is­land Ac­tive Women’s Week­end will have played their part in shap­ing the fu­ture of many Hamil­ton Is­land guests and lo­cals fol­low­ing last week­end’s busy sched­ule of ac­tiv­i­ties.

A mas­sive week­end of events was held on Hamil­ton Is­land, in­clud­ing the Mother’s Day Clas­sic.

Busi­ness Chicks founder Emma Isaacs, well-be­ing won­der woman Lola Berry, Sport Aus­tralia Hall of Fame in­ductee triath­lete Emma Car­ney and Rio Olympic sail­ing sil­ver medal­list Lisa Dar­manin all gave talks about their jour­ney, their chal­lenges, but most im­por­tantly their mind­set that had helped them over­come chal­lenges and achieve their lofty ac­com­plish­ments.

Ac­ti­vat­ing Change was the theme for the week­end and be­sides an en­gag­ing panel dis­cus­sion, women had the chance to take part in a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties that would help them learn, chal­lenge them to try new things and so­cialise and learn in an open and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment.

“The week­end kicked off with a game of women’s AFL 9s and con­cluded with stargaz­ing on a per­fect Whit­sun­day evening. But it was the ac­cess to the stars along the way that re­ally made the most im­pact with the par­tic­i­pants,” Hamil­ton Is­land ac­tiv­i­ties and sports events man­ager Steve Jack­son said.
