Becoming a Global Messenger is “really good fun”, according to Special Olympics Waitakere’s Judith Porter. “The Global Messengers are a good group.”
In her new role Judith is on a mission to help people learn to swim. Swimming is something that she has found very rewarding over the past 20 years and she wants to share the experience. Judith swims for Special Olympics Waitakere and trains once a week at West Wave Aquatic Centre in Henderson, Auckland.
She’s also a gung-ho skier and will be heading to the National Winter Games in August to compete with other Special Olympics New Zealand athletes at Cardrona Alpine Resort.
