The Warriors Community Foundation recently visited Christchurch to deliver their mental & physical wellbeing programme, Prepare to Perform in six primary schools and also support the Global Games at the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub.
Ambassador Ruben Wiki, and foundation staff, Charlotte Scanlan, Kenzie Wiki, Kanyon Paul and Petrece Kesha attended Halswell, Opawa, Kirkwood Intermediate, Waitakiri, Te Aratai College and Russley schools. Over 1100 children took part.
At the weekend and as part of the Sky Sport Roadshow, the team attended the Global Games where over 600 children took part in a festival of junior rugby league.
The core ethos of the Global Games is to give all junior players the opportunity to participate against clubs and teams from around the country and the world, on a foundation of sportsmanship, enjoyment and friendship; all the while creating lifelong memories with their mates on tour.
Founder and director Ty Campbell dreamt the idea of the games whilst on his OE in Scotland.
Support came from Christchurch City Council, Canterbury Rugby League, and the Warriors Community Foundation.
CEO for the Warriors Community Foundation said “Global Games epitomises all the great things of being part of a team. It’s a great advert for rugby league and engaging tamariki.”
Dreadnought Civil owners Courtney Pomare and Sam Pomare hosted an amazing golf day to support Warriors Community Foundation with the immense support of Mike King and I Am Hope at the stunning Whitford Golf Course on Friday 27 October.
