Rugby Vs Leukaemia
One of our long standing and Life Member’s was diagnosed with AML in October 2017.
After an unsuccessful global donor search, it was recognised that there was a shortfall in the donor pool for people of Pacific Island origin.
To address the issue, we at Power House, developed the concept of the Rugby Vs Leukaemia Challenge. The purpose of the Challenge is for our Club to motivate our players and supporters to sign up through the Red Cross Blood Service to be blood/ plasma donors and Register on the Bone Marrow Register.
Our Club will be playing Harlequins at Albert Park on Anzac Day the 25th of April 2020, games commencing at 1.00pm, for the Rugby Vs Leukaemia Challenge Cup. We will have a Red Cross Marquee for supporter’s and players to sign up on the day.
We will then take the message to all other clubs in Victoria.
Attached is also a schedule of the Red Cross Mobile Unit sites & dates.
