Chris McDermott – Founder and Board Chairman
Chris McDermott is the founder of Little Heroes Foundation, and is currently the Chairman of the Board and acting Chief Executive Officer. Chris is perhaps best known as the inaugural captain of the Adelaide Crows, after beginning his footy career with the Glenelg Tigers in the SANFL. It was through the Adelaide Crows that Chris was first introduced to Nicholas and Nathan, who were both battling cancer, and it was these two boys who inspired Chris and Tony McGuinness to form the organisation that became Little Heroes Foundation.
Since retirement from the AFL, Chris has continued working for the foundation while also working in many roles in the media, including breakfast radio. Chris is married to Jo and has twins Harper and Fraser.
