Hurlers Charity Round 2017

$8,342 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 73 people in 15 months
We are The Hurlers. The Hurlstone Park Wanderers Over 35/3s football team, but do not be deceived by the fancy title. We are an aging, social team, but a little different. 

We have an eclectic mix of backgrounds and professions. Most of us are in our mid-40's, several are pushing 50, and there are a few players of 40-odd years. We have more players over 50 than under 40 (of that there is one). Though the Football part is important, it is not our only focus

Every week is themed (e.g. '70's shirt week’, ‘Family Day’, ‘Prawn Day’, ‘Opposites Day’, ‘Ride to Football Day’, ‘Irish Day and ‘Mulled Wine Day’ to name a few); food, drink, a joke, music and aphorism of the week is rostered, there is a large crèche of kids (with wives and girlfriends) on the sideline. 

Charity Day Round - Round 8 (20-21 May 2017):

In 2015 we added a new Themed Round to the Roster – Charity Day Round. 

The U/16 Hurlerstone Park Boys team was seeking donations to help fund their entry and trip to the annual Kanga Cup tournament in Canberra.  We thought this was a worthy cause and arranged a team dinner and donated various game day items (such as match day positions, the captain of the day, right to take next penalty kick) and instigated a loose fine system to raise money. 

We raised money for the boys (and who co-incidentally won the tournament). Our donation was more than half the total money raised by the team.

In 2016 we wanted to challenge ourselves to make Charity Day Round bigger with the goal to double our efforts and broaden our charities. A target of raising $1,000 was set.

A trivia night was arranged at Petersham Bowling Club (who kindly waived room hire fees) in addition to the series of match day activities and ‘fines’.  Team members donated both cash and kind Pink socks were worn to support #pullupyoursocks.

Overall, Charity Day 2016 raised over $3,000 for our chosen charities.

We are hoping that in 2017 we can raise even more money for our charities.

As the Hurlers are a family football team, The Hurlers Charity Day goal is to support a range of charities with a focus footballers and families. It is proposed that monies raised will be split mainly between:

- The Pararoos -  Australian Paralympic Team
- John Moriaty Football - Support for Aboriginal Communities through football development
- McGrath Foundation - Raise money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia
- DT38 Foundation  - Raises testicular cancer awareness through education and opportunities. 


We'll also be wearing special Charity Round Jerseys and donating our match fees to our Charities.

Your help is very much appreciated.
