Saliman Bin Juda
Saliman is from Hammond and Thursday Island in the Torres Strait, QLD. He represented Thursday Island at the National Deadly Fun Run championships in 2015 and is a member of the TI Deadly runners, established by 2014 IMP Graduates, Elsie Seriat and Harold Matthew. He has also volunteered at every event that has been held on the Island in the past 12 months since missing out on the 2015 squad. Since his previous trial in 2015, he has continued to run, contribute to his community through volunteer activities and has done everything in his power to strengthen his application for 2016. Saliman loves the transformation that has occurred on Thursday Island since Harold and Elsie were selected in the 2014 squad and wants to continue to drive the impact that the running group is having on the Island. He thinks Thursday Island's running culture is growing considerable and wants to focus his attention on the other Islands within the Torres Strait, so he spends time on the outer Islands through his work and believes he can have a positive influence in this area. Saliman has Certificate III in Aged care, Disability Services and Children Services as well as a Certificate IV in Business. Saliman is a great candidate to continue the legacy started by Elsie, Harold and Alicia up in the Torres Strait.
