Hawks, Swans change colours for a cause

Pink and blue were the colours of the day when Townsville’s University Hawks and Curra Swans took to the field on Saturday for their first charity match.

Uni Hawks Football donned blue jumpers to promote awareness and raise money for Beyond Blue while Curra Swans sported pink as a show of support for the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Shane Jurgen’s from University Hawks said both clubs had chosen charities that were close to their hearts.

“Mental health is an important issue for our club and we recognise the importance of mateship and inclusiveness that a sporting club brings to help reduce the incidence of metal illnesses and depression,” said Jurgens.

Our club has over 100 playing members as well as a great support network of friends and family. The club’s focus is based on close friendships and looking out for your mates, which attracts many players to our club and has led to our many successes over the years”.

The Charity day continued with a fundraising dinner at the Curra Swans Football Club that featured special guests, ex-Australian cricketer Rodney Hogg and Hawthorn legend John Platten.
