It’s been a busy period on the park at BRFC as the Club ramps up preparations for upcoming Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League campaigns.
While both sides have been hard at work on the field, ensuring we’re in the best shape possible for a tilt at two championships this season, our players have been doing their bit off the park and giving back to our incredible local communities.
As we celebrate Multicultural Month in August, fan favourite Henrique joined Multicultural Development Australia Ambassador Jamie Young fittingly at a Super Saturday event hosted by Queensland Program of Assistance to Survivors of Torture and Trauma (QPASTT) and the QLD Mental Health Commission.
The event at Acacia Ridge’s Spanish Centre, included a youth football seven-a-side competition, where both men’s and women’s teams were encouraged to enter. The duo took the time to take questions from a enthusiastic group of participants and share some insight from their time as professional footballers.
Teammates Jack Hingert and Stefan Mauk also did their bit to put smiles on some kids’ dials, handing out some BRFC goodies and meeting with some of our younger fans at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.
The visit was co-ordinated by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, the official charity of the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, who together with supporters, partners and the community, funds research, equips the visionary hospital, invests in clinical programs and provides holistic support to help sick kids and their families.
