Ambassador Pat McCabe

Special Olympics ACT are delighted to have ACT Brumbies and Australian Wallabies rugby union player Pat McCabe as their ambassador.

Pat has been involved with the Special Olympics since attending their Fun in the Park day at Canberra Stadium in February 2012 and was totally enthralled at the enthusiasm which was demonstrated by all the athletes. Pat also attended the Special Olympics ACT Sailing competition in March and the Canberra Centenary Swimming Competition in April 2013.

Pat is a natural fit to be an Ambassador for Special Olympics, his hard hitting play on the field gives way to a kind and compassionate person off field  and athletes admire his healthy lifestyle from keeping physically fit and eating right to being active in his local community.

Please look out for Pat at future Special Olympics ACT events.
