YARRA RELAY FOR LIFE
Date: Friday 25th / Saturday 26th April 2014

Time: 6:00pm – 10:00am

Venue: Collingwood Athletics Track, George Knott Reserve, Clifton Hill

A little bit about Relay:
Relay For Life is an incredible overnight event that is an opportunity for family, friends and colleagues to get together with the community and celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer, and fight back against a disease that takes too much.

It is a unique event where teams of 10 to 15 challenge themselves to take turns to keep a baton moving in a relay style walk or run overnight. Each event is unique and you can stay for the whole event, camp overnight, or just visit and enjoy the free entertainment, prizes and ceremonies that make Relay For Life so inspirational.

Each person on the team pays a registration fee of $20 which includes a polo shirt and breakfast at the event. Participants are supported in their fundraising efforts in the lead up to the event.

There are no age limitations or fitness requirements – Relay For Life is suitable for everyone and anyone can join in the fun! Register to participate in your local Relay For Life now.

  How your fundraising helps:
·         $1500: Can help fund ground-breaking research into the causes of cancer and into new and improved treatments.
·         $1000: Can help us fund clinical trials, which test new and improved ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
·         $500: Can allow a research team to purchase tissue samples for use in investigating the cause of cancer as well as potential treatment options.
·         $100: Can help us to provide resources to health professionals to assist them in adopting proven methods in treating and caring for their patients.
·         $50: Can help us train a staff member for the Cancer Council Helpline (13 11 20). The helpline is a confidential telephone support service accessible to all Australians for a cost of a local call. Specially trained staff can answer questions about all aspects of cancer, including prevention, early detection and treatment.
·         $25: Can enable us to provide a newly diagnosed cancer patient with important support and resources to help them through their cancer journey.

By becoming involved in this event your fundraising will help support the 319 people diagnosed every year with cancer in the City of Yarra.

The Girls invade Victoria Park

Women's AFL is the fastest-growing sport in the nation. More than 136,000 women played the game in 2012,. 2013 saw the AFL endorse the first women’s match at the MCG and in 2014 the Roy Girls will be creating history by being the first females to don the maroon and blue jumper for Fitzroy.

Fitzroy Girls took to the field on Sunday 1st December, invading Victoria Park., the former home of the Collingwood Football Club. The Ladies Stand on the ground’s north side, may have been pulled down in 1929 to make way for the Jack Ryder Stand, but we can confirm, “The Girls are back in town”

Ranging from 10 -18 years, thirty three girls of varying talent and experience joined coaches and supporters for the inaugural Fitzroy Junior Football Club female coaching clinic.

The girls were guided through their first run of the 2014 pre season by quality coaches, some legends of the game, along with others experienced in coaching female athletes. Skill building drills and the finer points of kicking, marking, handball and tackling were introduced to the squad. Some girls came with no experience of AFL football, whilst others brought their experience from sports such as Hockey, Basketball, Netball and Track and Field.

The session concluded with a fun and well-contested game, which enhanced a great team spirit:  New friends were made, a love of the game discovered. All girls in attendance were presented with their own Fitzroy training jumper and were left ready and raring for the next clinic.

Our Youth Girls team (15 to 18 year olds) still has some room for new players. If you are interested please contact our Registration Officer on registration@fitzroyjuniorfc.com.au

Go Roy Girls!!!
