Applications are now open for the first Compeat Nutrition Pathway to Paralympics Grant, with two grants for aspiring Paralaympians set to be awarded in partnership with the Sport Access Foundation.
The two Grant recipients will receive $1,500 to cover costs relating to new and upgraded equipment to compete in an international competition in their chosen sport, to access additional coaching support and to assist with travel costs – particularly where additional cost to travel with equipment or a carer/guide is received.
Recipients will also receive free access to the platform which includes the individual 24/7 support and contact to a member of our team of accredited Performance Dietitians for a 12-month basis.
“We are very excited to be supporting aspiring and future Paralympians through the first CompEat Nutrition Pathway to Paralympics Grant,” said Compeat Nutrition Co-Founder and Co-CEO Alicia Edge.
“Funds for the Grant originate from CompEatCon held in April last year, a global online summit that brought sports practitioners and athletes together in a time where many were struggling for purpose.
“As one of the first fully online conferences in the height of COVID-19 lockdowns, we were thrilled by both the response and generosity from all involved in the event.
“Thousands of dollars were raised within a ‘pay what you can’ ticket structure to help us fund much-needed support for athlete wellbeing.
“Not only will these two Grants provide funding for the development and training of the recipients, they will also gain full access to our CompEat Nutrition Platform – integrating nutrition support at the centre of their well-being and performance.”
Applications are now open until Friday 27 August 2021. For more information, and to apply, head to the Sport Access Foundation website.
