We’re in the business of changing young people’s futures
We love hearing updates from past Variety grant recipients who continue to inspire and achieve. One of those recipients Dylan Alcott OAM, and Variety Victoria Ambassador, visits us regularly at events such as the Great Grand Final Lunch to share his story with the extended Variety family. In 2014 the wheelchair tennis ace and Paralympic Gold medallist, made a special sacrifice for Variety.
“I’ve decided to go for a 24 hour world record of wheelchair tennis. It’s a pretty ridiculous idea to be honest,” laughs Dylan.
The young star completed his 24 hour attempt at Melbourne Park with a line‐up of celebrities – including Nick Kyrigos, Elizabeth Cambage, Olympia Valance, Jack Watts and Tom Hawkins amongst others, as well as family members and fans who joined him on court to complete the challenge.
Dylan Martin Alcott, OAM is an Australian wheelchair basketballer, wheelchair tennis player and motivational speaker
