Published on Tuesday, 9 May 2023 at 11:59:32 AM

Frauke Rawlings is an amateur boxer for the PCYC in Geraldton. She first fell in love with the sport of boxing at the age of 12 as she found it fun and was it was great to keep her fit. However, it didn't take long for her coaches to see she could compete at a higher level. With her determination coupled with solid mentoring and support from local coaches, within a 3-year span, she successfully won a state title, made the Western Australian State Boxing Team and became a national Golden Glove Champion.

Frauke has not taken this success lightly as she is now preparing to defend her state title and go on to bigger things with the National Club Championships in August in Adelaide.

Frauke has shown discipline, not just in the sport of boxing but in other facets of her life. On top of training 6 days a week, she volunteers at the PCYC Junior boxing program where she provides guidance and shares her knowledge of the sport to the next generation of aspiring boxers. She also works on a Sunday and is studying her ATAR at school where she is aiming to attend university to study law and psychology whilst continuing boxing with a goal of making the Australian Olympic team.

She has also shown an amazing capability to excel in other sports having recently been awarded a scholarship for the Leeuwin 7 day Sailing Leadership Challenge. 

The Josh Kennedy Foundation is proud to support Frauke to achieve her current and future goals as a part of the Sports Assistance Scholarship Program. The Foundation would like to thank its’ partners of the foundation, the program, and the Mid West community for assisting young people to achieve their goals.
