George Tonna: Camden’s inspirational Australia Day ambassador
Paralympian George Tonna is Camden Council’s Australia Day 2021 ambassador.
The 46-year-old who has Cerebral Palsy lives hard by his mantra that “If you put your mind to something, anything is possible”.
In 2010, George formed the NSW Physical Disability Rugby League Association (NSW PDRLA), which gave players with disability a chance to get out there and enjoy the sport. Most recently, he started Heroes with Ability that takes rugby league into the school system for people of all abilities.
