Naomi Gibbins Leaves For ARMTour

FAME Athlete Naomi Gibbins was selected by NRL football player, Joe Williams, to be one of the elite athlete role models as part of the ARMTour (Athletes as Role Models). Naomi will join other NRL players, Olympians and other elite level athletes for one week in the Australian desert where they will educate and inspire Indigenous youth to make healthier lifestyle choices.

Since 1997, ARMTour role models have reached more than 6,000 young people in 11 communities in the Northern Territory, Western Australia, East Arnhem Region, and the Tiwi Islands. Thanks to these elite athletes, attendance has increased in schools, more youth are participating in sports and overall lifestyle choices have improved.

“I am truly honoured and extremely excited to be given this opportunity by NASCA to act as a role model for young children and provide valuable education and nurturing to make a difference. I am looking forward to this experience which I am certain this will be life changing for me and our team as well. I look forward to sharing with you my stories and photographs on my return”
