Laura Davis

Laura-Davis.JPGLaura Davis is a big believer in keeping fit and staying active in the community. As well as her sporting endeavours, Laura donates her time to a wide variety of causes, including being a teacher aide for a dance lesson at a local special needs unit, and volunteering at her local Farmers store and Riding for the Disabled.

She’s also a craft fan and makes items such as pet beds for the SPCA and things to sell for the Cancer Society. Recently Laura also helped make a winning outfit out of rubbish bags for the local hospice’s “Creative Catwalk” fundraiser, and modelled it at the event!  

Laura has been involved with Special Olympics Taupo since 2008 and competes in swimming and athletics. She’s now also on the Club’s Committee and has helped to fundraise for events with raffles, sausage sizzles, growing plants to sell, and working at a local market day.

She says Special Olympics has given her a new group of friends, helped to keep her fit and active, and increased her confidence, self esteem and ability to talk to new people and make new friends. Being a diabetic, training and competing with Special Olympics also helps Laura manage her health.

As a Global Messenger, Laura is hoping to talk to people about Special Olympics and what she has achieved personally, and encourage them to strive for their goals. 

“I want to help people with and without disabilities to learn that they can all achieve their goals, whatever their abilities or disabilities are.”
