GALLERY: BRFC paddle for kids


On Saturday morning, we braved chilly conditions on the Brisbane River, taking the paddles out to race funds for Juiced TV.

Juiced TV is an Australian-first entertainment initiative starring children at the Lady Cilento Hospital and improving their hospital journey by creating a unique way for them to engage and communicate with one another.

The 2018 Paddle for Kids Festival and Dragon Boat Regatta was again an incredible success with a fun-filled day raising vital funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

More than $80,000 has been raised following Saturday’s event.

Partnered with Telstra, Hyundai A-League players Jack Hingert, Joe Caletti and Connor O’Toole and Roar Women stars Abbey Lloyd and Natalie Tathem, as well as Head Coach Mel Andreatta hit the water.

Taking on a number of fellow Brisbane sporting clubs, our BRFC team finished second in both heats, but more importantly created an unforgettable day for everyone involved.

Our players were challenged to a dance-off against the Brisbane Heat, with BRFC mascots Roary & Rosie not missing the opportunity to show off some moves either.

Brisbane Roar Football Club is proud to be involved in the fundraising vent and would like to thank all who donated and contributed.

Take a look below at some of the best snaps from a fantastic day at South Bank.
