WATCH | Inside Hogs For The Homeless
Brad Fittler’s Hogs For The Homeless (H4H) crew yesterday (Monday, 27 February) completed one of their most successful tours in its five-year history, travelling for 11 days in excess of 4000km on their Harley-Davidson motorcycles, handing out Rugby League balls to more than 3000 children across 14 country towns and helped the town of Walgett re-turf an entire Rugby League pitch.
The H4H crew consisted of NSW True Blues legends Fittler, Nathan Hindmarsh, Steve Menzies, Danny Buderus Josh Perry, Paul Sironen, Steve Roach, Tim Brasher, Kerry Hemsley and Ian Schubert.
The touring party made visits to number of Rugby League tournaments, including three all-girls Oak Plus Cup nines tournaments, the annual Army-Navy Matthew Locke MG Memorial Rugby League Day in Bellingen and helped the town of Walgett re-turf an entire Rugby League pitch involving 40 local volunteers, four semi-trailers and a number of council tipper trucks, worth almost $150,000 in materials and labour.
The H4H crew made special public appearances from Wagga Wagga to Coffs Harbour and ran Rugby League clinics to help drive Junior Rugby League membership and raise funds for Father Chris Riley’s Youth off the Streets.
Since its inception in 2013, H4H has raised more than $450,000 for Youth off the Streets and it is estimated that more than $100,000 was raised this year.
