It is with great sadness that Inas has learnt that former Executive Committee member and former President of the Inas Asia/South Pacific region, Marie Little OAM, passed away over the weekend following a short illness.
Marie was one of the founding figures in Inas and a passionate advocate of sport for people with an intellectual disability.
