The Morgan Innes Foundation was established to honor the lives of seven people drawn together by their love of figure skating. While four people died tragically, three remained seriously injured in the collision between a boat and ferry on Sydney Harbour on 28th March, 2007.
The Foundation celebrates the lives of these passionate people by raising funds to help young ice skaters pursue their ice skating dreams and provides opportunities for disadvantaged youth to experience the “fun” that brings all skaters to the ice each day.
Below are the upcoming events held by The Morgan Innes Foundation.

colourfully as possible.

The Morgan Innes Foundation would like to thank you for the overwhelming support we have received since beginning in 2007. Thank you to all the organisations, businesses and people who have made donations.
We would especially like to thank these people and groups who have made large contributions to the Morgan Innes Foundation
Our special thanks go to the US Figure Skating Association who has made a contribution to the Foundation of $2500 US.
It was always Morgan’s dream to train in the United States and Peter Cain, Liz Cain’s brother already lives and coaches there.
Ice Skating is a great international sport especially loved by Alan, Simone and Morgan. The Trustees of the Morgan Innes Foundation hope that with the assistance of the Australian Sports Foundation and Ice Skating Australia many more Australian Skaters can feel the fellowship highlighted by this donation.

The Morgan Innes Foundation Launch was held in Sydney on Thursday 26th April, 2007. The opening will be presented by NSW Premier Morris Iemma officiated the opening and presented the Foundation with its first donation. The sport’s governing body, Ice Skating Australia, will award a series of skating scholarships from money received by The Foundation.
The first recipients will be named at this year’s national championships – to be held at the Hunter Rink in the Hunter Valley, two hours drive north of Sydney – in August this year.
Queensland-based scholarships in Morgan’s name were launched on Tuesday, 22nd May, 2007 with the assistance of QLD Premier Peter Beattie.
The idea behind the scholarships is to recognise and nurture young Queenslanders who show promise and talent as figure skaters.
