Kicking for Cancer
Most people in their lives have been effected by Cancer be it a relative, friend or personally.
Kicking for Cancer is the first ever Football Day created for families to come along and commemorate those lost to Cancer whilst enjoying a game of Football that features victims of cancer (that have recovered) and 25 Ex AFL Superstars such as Brendan Fevola, Greg Williams, Jake King, Dustin Fletcher, Andrew Krakouer, Stephen Milne and Spida Everitt. The big day is Sunday July 7that Trevor Barker Oval Sandringham Game starts at 2.30pm. Trevor was a former St.Kilda Superstar and Captain who was lost to us at 39 due to this shocking disease.
The game is City V Country will be played for the Trevor Barker Cup and will be preceded by an AFL Legends Lunch featuring icons of the game such as Sam Newman, Des Tuddenham, Peter Bedford and Warwick Capper David Cloke and Cancer Victim Professional Golfer and Radio Personality Mark Allen
One of the big moments of the day will be when not only at the ground but around Australia we release a family memo to the sky to commemorate those lost.
Other highlights will include our VIP Grandstand set aside for families effected by Cancer who can sit with their children in comfort to watch the game
