David Hammond’s 53-year-old sister Jane was diagnosed with MND so he decided to sponsor a new North Cronulla Surf Lifesaving Club surfboat emblazoned with MND awareness details and dedicated it to not only his sister Jane’s fight but also to Peter Whitford, a North Cronulla club stalwart who had died from MND. In February the North Cronulla U23 crew represented NSW (in the interstate series) and Australia (in the Trans-Tasman series against NZ) at Eloura Beach, NSW, winning both in Jane’s boat. The North Cronulla Open Women’s team also raced in Jane’s boat and placed 1st in the Australian Surf Rowing League 2018 Championships. Well done all.
