Fans at the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ round 16 game against the Sharks this Saturday will be able to start their preparation for this year’s Relay For Life and show their support for cancer sufferers and cancer research when the Cancer Council takes over Cowboys Community Corner at 1300SMILES Stadium.
Fans will be able to sign up for the 2015 Relay For Life when they visit Community Corner, plus get their hair sprayed purple or their temporary tattoo applied in a show of support for the Cancer Council initiative.
This year's Relay For Life will be held on 12-13 September at Tony Ireland Stadium.
Some on-field action is also planned at the game this Saturday with Cancer Council mascot Sid the Seagull joining Miss Moo, who will be showing off her 2015 Relay For Life shirt.
“Word is also around that there is going to be a bit of unusual action on the Southern hill at 1300SMILES Stadium, so keep an eye out if you’re coming to the game!” Cowboys general manager – community Fiona Pelling said.
As well as supporting and promoting the Cancer Council and their fundraising through Community Corner, the Cowboys are working to ensure that every fan on the night gets the Relay For Life message through displays on the big screen.
Cancer Council Queensland Relay For Life coordinator Amanda Power thanked the Cowboys for their support.
“With the help of the North Queensland Cowboys we can continue to make a vital difference to those in our community affected by cancer,” Ms Power said.
“I encourage the community to visit us at the Cowboys Community Corner, find out what Relay For Life is all about and register for this inspirational event!”
The Community Corner space at home games reflects the Cowboys’ commitment to assist local charities and organisations to build awareness and support from the local community.
Twelve charities and organisations working in the North Queensland community will use this opportunity to promote their cause throughout the 2015 season.
