The Gold Coast SUNS are accepting the challenge in 2019 and beyond.
On Thursday, February 21, the SUNS unveiled their new club mantra Challenge Accepted that will be implemented across all avenues of the club.
The new ethos signals a new chapter in the club’s history and has already seen some influence throughout club operations including a reset of the football department and overhaul of both the playing list and other football programs.
Already, 14 new staff and 13 new players have joined the club since the end of the 2018 AFL season.
Challenge Accepted aims at not shying away from the past while taking whatever comes their way in the present and future head on.
Gold Coast SUNS Chief Executive Mark Evans said Challenge Accepted is an attitude the entire club had adopted.
“Challenge Accepted is about valuing action and responsibility. It’s about not making excuses while looking for the positive and bringing others along,” Evans said.
“Like the spirit for many Gold Coasters, when we hit tough times, on-field or off, we’ll just work harder and keep showing up.”
Gold Coast officially launched the Challenge Accepted campaign this morning with a series of mini challenges for people of all abilities across the region.
Activation sites at Currumbin, Burleigh, North Burleigh, Surfers Paradise, Main Beach, Labrador and Paradise Point.
Gold Coasters are encouraged to hashtag #challengeaccepted and follow the SUNS social media channels throughout the month of March for a chance to win memorable prizes in the lead up to the AFL season.
