Go Aussies! VERTO gets behind Australian Paralympic Team

VERTO is proud to support the Australian Paralympic Team by purchasing 28 virtual ‘seats’ in a stadium at Tokyo 2020.

This number represents the 28 years VERTO has been providing Disability Employment Services to everyday Australians.

VERTO Chief Executive Officer, Ron Maxwell, said he is a big supporter of helping those with disabilities reach their potential.

“The Paralympic Games shows the world that athletes are not defined by their disability – but by their talent, hard work and determination,” he said.

“The same can be said for the wonderful people VERTO has the privilege of working with every day.

“We provide disability employment services and support that enables our clients to discover and learn that they are so much more than their disability.

“We hope this donation helps the next generation chase their sporting dreams,” Mr Maxwell said.

All money raised as part of the Green and Gold Virtual Seat Campaign will help Australia’s Para-athletes compete on the international stage, and provide the 20 percent of Australians living with a disability the opportunity to shine through sport.
