Nicole Fitzsimons was an inspiring, talented dancer and devoted footy fan with an infectious love of life. Anyone who was lucky enough to spend time with her was a better person for that experience.

At twenty-four years young, Nicole was on the brink of achieving her dream as a sports journalist with channel 9, before her life was tragically taken in a motorbike accident whilst holidaying in Thailand, October 2012.

The Nicole Fitzsimons Foundation has been established in her honour to continue Nicole’s legacy of helping others to fulfil their life aspirations. Your kind donation will contribute directly to passionate and gifted performing artists and sportspeople who really need assistance in reaching their full potential.

Another integral part of The Foundation is raising awareness of travel safety overseas among young Australian tourists, with a focus on the dangers of riding motorbikes in foreign countries & the importance of purchasing travel insurance before embarking on any holiday. By raising awareness of these fatal risks through presentations at local schools and community clubs, the Fitzsimons Family hopes to save other innocent families from suffering the heart ache of losing a love one to this senseless tragedy.

The Nicole Fitzimons Foundation is a charity registered with ACNC – ABN 61 161 928 829
