A contingent of South Melbourne FC senior men’s and women’s players have recently actively supported a amazing event by the name of the Trevor Barker Sports Camp.
The camp is designed to give kids with cancer and their brothers and sisters an opportunity to have some time-out from cancer treatment and the rigours of hospital visits through participation in a range of sports activities and workshops.
South Melbourne FC was more than happy to support this charitable cause and play a major role in trying to put a smile on the faces of these brave children.
Players that represented South on the day were Fernando De Moraes, Steven O’Dor, Danni Radojicic, Francesco Stella and Sam Torrens from the men’s team, whilst Carol Foy and Lois Greenwood were attending on behalf of the senior women’s team.
Throughout the day, South’s players conducting multiple clinics for the kids as well as playing a series of mini games which lifted the spirits of the kids and players alike.
The club also donated a large range of merchandise for the children, including soccer balls, caps and various other items.
South Melbourne FC was proud to play a part in such a wonderful event and urges all fans to check out the Challenge website (www.challenge.org.au) to learn more about what can be done to support these unfortunate kids.
