NBI is honoured to have wonderful Ambassadors who share our vision and values, support our activities and raise awareness of disability within the Northern Beaches Community.

Josie McLean

Josie has an impressive record as a Special Olympian with a particular focus on Ten Pin Bowling. She has represented and won gold for NSW at the National games every year since 2010, represented Australia in the Trans-Tasman and Asia Pacific games and in 2015 won Gold for Australia at the Special Olympics Word Games in Los Angeles.

Josie was named Sports Personality of the Year 2014 for the Northern Beaches Region .
When not scoring strikes for her country Josie can be found dancing jazz ballet or working at Big W at Warringah Mall, where she has worked for over 14 years. Being such a busy lady we are delighted that Josie is able to support NBI as an Ambassador.

“I like hanging out with my carers from NBI and it makes me feel more independent when I am with them. I’m proud to be able to help NBI by being an Ambassador for them.”

Guy

Guy Leech

Guy is an absolute icon of the Northern Beaches, although he first shot to fame by winning the first ever Ironman race, the Coolangatta Gold, in 1984. He went on to dominate the sport for a decade and retired having never lost a marathon Ironman race, a feat which has never been equalled.
Since retiring from competition Guy has forged a successful business career, launching a signature range of fitness apparel, equipment and educational material as well as training thousands of people, ranging from Northern Beaches locals at his aquatic boot-camps to celebrities including Madonna and George Clooney.
Guy is a strong advocate for health and wellbeing and is a multiple Guinness World Record breaker; each record attempt further promotes his health and wellbeing message to the community.

“I’m excited to be supporting NBI in the valuable work they do in this community.”
