Richmond Tigers Welcome Helping Hoops Onto Etihad

By 17/07/2017News

We were delighted to have the opportunity to take kids from three Helping Hoops programs to the Richmond Tigers game at Etihad Stadium on July 16 where we helped form a guard of honour for the players as they ran out onto the ground. The experience was a unique chance for the kids, with many attending their first ever game of footy.

Being up close to the players as they raced out in front of a cheering crowd was a special moment for us all, and something we will not soon forget.

For the record, the Tigers won the game.

Newsboys Foundation, which has been a backer of our programs for a number of years, was responsible for making the day possible, and we would like to thank Sandy for thinking of us. A big thanks also goes to Michael from the Tigers who was a gracious host and made us feel very welcome.

Yellow and black!
