Media Release - ARM Tour start
ARM Tour commences one week today
 
Melbourne, Australia (March 23, 2001) Proudly sponsored by PowerServe and NBL Live (a PowerServe initiative), the ten-day ARM Tour to the Northern Territory commences one week from today, departing from Melbourne as part of the Athletes as Role Models program.

Aiming to enrich the lives of Australian Youth, the Arm Tour introduces sport and sporting personalities to remote Australian communities.

This year’s Tour brings together a leading group of sporting professionals including: Brett Wheeler, Chris Anstey, Darren Smith, Jason Smith, Linley Frame, Dewey Michaels, Mark Nash, Ricky Grace, Mike Kelly and Rupert Sapwell.

Armtour seeks to use the platform of sport and the influence of high profile sportsmen and women to enhance hope for the future and enrich the lives of Australian youth. Outside of music, sport is recognised as the most significant interest and influence in young people’s lives.

The Tour will visit aboriginal communities of Titjikarla, Ali Curung, Papunya, Docker River, Yuendumu and Mutijulu in the Northern Territory.

In support of the Tour, PowerServe have developed a website to provide information and coverage on the ARM Tour, found at: www.armtour.com

Developed by several SLM chaplains and elite athletes in consultation with community leaders and educators, the Athletes as Role Models program or ARM Tour facilitates a role-modelling program each year, which touches the lives of isolated, indigenous youth in the remote areas of the Northern Territory.

The ARM Tour instils a greater sense of hope for the future by building self-esteem and equipping youth in decision-making activities. This is achieved through skills and initiative exercises, encouragement and positive affirmation along with open discussion about issues relevant to young people.
