    Yvie

    On the 31st March 2009 Yvette (Yvie) Eglinton was training for the World Triathlon Championships when she hit a pothole and flew over the handle bars breaking both her neck and back. The accident has left Yvie as a T4 paraplegic with only a small amount of sensory function. Yvie has not let her disability stop her from pursuing her dream of representing Australia in the sporting arena.

    Apart from her sporting ambitions, Yvie also wanted to be involved in bringing awareness to the public about spinal cord injury and the devastating effect it can have on the lives of both the victim and their families. While spending time in hospital and rehabilitation Yvie said she didn’t want her injury to be in vain, and to bring some meaning to something that has dramatically changed her life. Work friends of Yvie’s were so inspired by her determination both before the accident and after that they wanted to do something, they joined forces with the Neil Sachse Foundation to help raise much needed funds. This partnership opened up an opportunity for Yvie to become an ambassador for the Neil Sachse Foundation. Yvie has since been involved in creating education packages for school children to help raise awareness of spinal cord injuries and how best to handle a suspected injury. Yvie has enjoyed being an ambassador for the foundation and hopes to continue her role into the future with creating additional programs that help educate the public as to the effects of spinal cord injury and to help create greater awareness and tolerance of their needs.
