This Footy Colours Day season, Fight Cancer Foundation along with some of Australia’s biggest footy stars joined the kids in our education support programs to celebrate all things footy!
Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide
Last month, players from Adelaide United’s Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League squads participated in a learning session at the Hospital School SA as part of Footy Colours Day.
Reds Captain, Isaías, Mirko Boland, Paul Izzo, Kristin Konstandopoulos, Georgia Campagnale, and Chelsie Dawber joined the children in some arts and crafts activities. They also handed out Adelaide United scarfs and signed team posters.
The players then headed to the oncology ward to visit the kids who were unable to attend the classroom session.
The Hospital School Principal said she had ‘never seen some of the students smile so much and be so animated’.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead
GWS Giants vice-captain Alicia Eva spent some time with children and young people currently receiving treatment in the Cancer Centre at Westmead. Alicia signed and gave out GWS Giants merchandise to the delighted children.
The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne
In August, players from Melbourne Football Club and Collingwood Football Club AFLW joined our very own Bo Bear in participating in footy themed activities.
The players also visited the children on the oncology ward as part of the Footy Colours Day celebrations.
Special thanks to Eliza Hynes, Billy Stretch, Christian Petracca, Mitch King and Oskar Baker.
