Hogs for Homeless founder Brad Fittler chats to NSWRL Media about his upcoming Hogs for Homeless tour.
In 2012, Rugby League legend and NSW Blues warrior Brad Fittler said that as a father it made him feel sick to his core that there were nearly 4000 homeless children under the age of 12 in the state of his origin, the state that he loves so much, the state that he has shed blood for; NSW.
This prompted ‘Freddy’ to contact Father Chris Riley and his ‘Youth off the Streets’ team to say that he wanted to create a fundraising event to help such a worthwhile organization.
Freddy decided that he and a couple of his mates; fellow rugby league legends, Ian Schubert and Nathan Hindmarsh, would ride their Harley Davidson motorcycles throughout NSW to raise both awareness and funds for our homeless youth. With the support of Harley Davidson and the NSWRL they showed ‘true blue’ spirit and created – “Hogs for the Homeless”
After a successful inaugural ride in 2013, the Hogs are back once again in 2014 to take to the cities and towns of New South Wales to support the cause and they want YOU to be apart of the action!
