We’re happy to announce our official partnership with the Brisbane Broncos as part of their Charity Partner Program.
The program supports charities through financial, merchandise and ticket donations as well as player appearances and additional support.
The Charity Partner Program will support our Peer Support program to continue in the 2019-2020 financial year.
The Peer Support program provides one-on-one support to people with newly acquired spinal cord injuries at the Spinal Injuries Unit as well as delivering peer education throughout the wider community.
This partnership with the Brisbane Broncos also means the Broncos home game against the Storm at Suncorp Stadium on 2 August will be dedicated to Spinal Life Australia and will help raise funds for the organisation.
We are also looking forward to having Broncos players meet with our clients and supporters.
Spinal Life Chief Executive Officer Michael Powell said he was delighted with the partnership announcement.
“The Brisbane Broncos Charity Partner Program aligns itself with organisations that support the community and we are thrilled to join the program,” Mr Powell said.
“We’ve seen the difference the Peer Support team can make to patients of the Spinal Injuries Unit, helping them to adjust to the challenges ahead and providing guidance based on their own lived experience with injury.
“It’s great to see the program’s benefits also recognised by the Broncos.”
