Adelaide Crows AFLW star Courtney Gum has been revealed as the guest speaker at this year's International Women's Day Breakfast and Fleurieu Women's Community Awards, to be held from 7:45am on Friday, March 6 at EAT@Whalers.
Courtney previously played two seasons with the Greater Western Sydney Giants before announcing her retirement in 2019, then reneging to re-enter the AFLW draft later that same year.
She has started off well for the Crows this season, proving a valuable addition to the squad and was nominated for Mark of the Year in Round 2.
Courtney grew up at Booleroo Centre with her family before attending boarding school in Port Pirie.
Her family then purchased a property at Wattle Flat, just outside Yankalilla, where Courtney joined the community for a couple of years before spreading her wings, now running her own physiotherapy clinic at Noarlunga. Courtney is supported by her partner Krissie and young son Buz.
Hosted by Member for Finniss David Basham and the Victor Harbor VIEW Club, the Fleurieu Women's Community Awards recognise inspirational women who have made, or are making outstanding contributions to the region, or have inspired others through their achievements.
This is the eighth such event held in the region and the categories this year are: Young Female Ambassador, Community Volunteer and Inspirational Business Woman.
