Canberra, Australia – 19 April 2017 – Australian world champion and Rio Olympic rowing gold medallist Kim Brennan AM has been named as the first ambassador for the REACH for Nepal Foundation.

The REACH for Nepal Foundation is an Australian charity founded and based in Canberra. It was established in 2015 to directly support the rebuilding of earthquake-devastated communities in rural Nepal.

Since her success in Rio, sculls champion Brennan has turned her attention to philanthropic endeavours.

“I’m attracted to the Foundation’s broad opportunities to assist those in need in Nepal, from financial support to hands-on assistance.

“I love that the Foundation was started by two Canberrans – people just like you or me – who wanted to play their part in making the world a better place,” she said.

Lachhu Thapa and Lou Nulley are the Canberra-based founding directors of the Foundation. They are thrilled that Brennan will be its inaugural ambassador.

“Kim’s dedication and genuine interest in the Foundation’s work is remarkable. We look forward to working alongside her to raise awareness of the Foundation,” said Nulley.

“We are honoured to have someone of Kim’s calibre lend her support to our cause,” added Thapa. “The Foundation is delighted to be embracing a period of growth and expansion with Kim as its ambassador.”
