Launched this week, Garrick joined other elite-level female athletes to talk about VicHealthÕs #ChangeOurGame with the added news that more than $7 million of funding will go into girls and women in sport over the next three years.

The launch received widespread media coverage, including the Channel 10 News


ÒSupport for girls and women in sport is growing, itÕs a really exciting time for all female athletes across all sports,Ó said Maddie at the launch.

ÒThe choices for girls in whatever sport they choose to play is expanding, and thatÕs a great thing, especially for the health and well-being of girls throughout our community.Ó

ÒIÕm really proud to be an ambassador and to represent VicHealth and these important messages,Ó added Maddie.
