Kicking goals for brain cancer

As the SMJFL’s charity partner we’re thrilled the league has been supporting brain matters for the past five years.

Thanks to all the generous players, coaches, team managers, goal umpires, runners, trainers and supporters who have helped us raise over $100,000 since 2017.

SMJFL has been a huge supporter of our foundation and is very close to our heart, with both Connor’s brother and sister playing throughout their childhood years.
