Redland raised over $6,000 for the Kim Walters Choice Program in their Round 22 win over Southport.
Redland’s Round 22 win over Southport was a victory on and off the field, with the club also raising more than $6,000 for breast cancer research.
Redland’s seniors, in conjunction with their masters’ side raised $6,350 for the Kim Walters Choice Program on the day of their Round 22 clash against Southport.
Both squads donned pink jerseys for their matches, accompanied by a charity pink lunch, which Brisbane Lions player, Stephen Wrigley attended, and the jumpers were later auctioned off.
The Bombers decided to hold the fundraising day after a former Redland premiership player lost his wife to breast cancer earlier this year.
The Kim Walters Choices Program is based at the Wesley Hospital and is a support program for breast and gynaecological cancer sufferers throughout their treatment and on their road to recovery.
It was a sensational day on and off the field for Redland, with the seniors getting up over the Sharks on the day, giving them crucial momentum heading into finals.
