JULY 28 2019 | Round 12
Previously, Connor’s Beanie Round, this year we’re doing something a little different. Our Kicking Goals for Brain Cancer round is a chance to make brains matter.
We’re looking for sponsors to pledge $ for every goal kicked on the day! It can be as little as $1 per goal, or as high as $5 – there are no rules!
Thanks to our wonderful supporter, the South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL), clubs from across the league will participate in our Kicking Goals for Brain Cancer round.
The round has grown to include more than 26 clubs from the league, AFL superstars and celebrities all across the country.
You can get involved by making a donation to your club or team, or buy a beanie or mini football.
Contact [email protected] for more information.
Kicking goals for brain cancer
As the SMJFL’s charity partner we’re thrilled the league has been supporting Connor’s Beanie Round for the past two years.
Thanks to all the generous players, coaches, team managers, goal umpires, runners, trainers and supporters who made a gold coin donation or purchased a beanie, we were able to raise more than $25,000 in 2017 and a massive $45,000 in 2018!
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.
So be sure to mark your calendars for this year’s Kicking Goals for Brain Cancer round and help your local club support a worthy cause.
If you’re a club and want to get involved, reach out to Bree Vallance [email protected]
