Annabelle sells sweets to compete in Global Games
Brisbane Water Secondary College para-athlete Annabelle Rodgers is selling sweets to raise the money she needs to be able to compete at the INAS Global Games in Brisbane in October.
Annabelle and her family have been selling fudge and honeycomb to cover competition and travel costs.
Annabelle's mother Ms Jodie Ewen-Rodgers said $2000 was still needed to get Annabelle to Brisbane.
Ms Ewen-Rodgers said anyone interested in purchasing some fudge or honeycomb could contact her via the Annabelle Rodgers Para Athlete Facebook page.
Athletics Australia announced in April that Annabelle had been selected to represent the country in discus, shot put and javelin.
The Games are the largest sporting event in the world for athletes with intellectual impairment with more than 1000 athletes set to take part this year.
Annabelle is one of the Central Coast's most successful junior athletes.
She holds two state records in discus.
This year she broke the Australian under-18 record in the shot put at the Australian Athletics Championships and set two new Australian under-18 and under-20 records in javelin at the same event.
