Come and wave goodbye to Brad Fittler, Nathan Hindmarsh and friends when they set out on a 3200km two-week journey this Saturday as the rugby league community rallies to raise funds for Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets in the battle against homelessness.
The 2015 ‘Hogs For The Homeless Tour’ will see the former Test stars joined by a host of league greats including Matt Cooper, Steve Menzies and Ian Schubert as they travel from Lismore to Gundagai.
Supporters of the NSW VB Blues can meet their heroes at 20 locations – at junior registration days, skills clinics, auction nights, fan appearances and school visits – throughout the State as they partner with Harley-Davidson on the tour which kicks off from Frasers Motorcycles at Concord at 9.15am on Saturday.
Hogs For The Homeless 2015 ends when they ride into Pirtek Stadium ahead of the round 1 clash between Parramatta and Manly on Friday, March 6.
“Father Chris Riley and Youth Off The Streets need as much help as they can get to make a difference because this is a huge problem in country areas as well as in the city,” said Fittler.
“This is a chance for rugby league fans in New South Wales to come out and say hello to us and make a difference at the same time. The people we have met along the way on past tours have been fantastic and I know they’ll get behind us again in 2015.”
Be sure to support the ride and purchase raffle tickets to support the charity, with your chance to win a Harley-Davidson XL1200X Forty Eight Worth $19,495.
