Involvement in the NRF Board:

James describes the reasons he joined the NRF Board: "the experience of seeing my mother succumb to the neurological disease Alzheimers in 2008/09, passing away in 2011. This experience galvanised my desire to learn more about the disease and to raise funds in support of much needed research."

In addition, due to James's interest in cycling, he is also eager to raise awareness for one of the NRF's fundraising project's - SAPOL's Ride Like Crazy, "because it raises significant funds for research undertaken by the NRF and the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation."

Personal motivations:

James explains his motivations for his Board Member position at the NRF: "I was very fortunate enough to have known through my family both Trevor Dinning and Donald Simpson (founders of the NRF); and feel honoured to have such a special connection with the organisation."
