Camels give the ju­niors a boost for Roost­ers last home game

Central Telegraph - - SPORT -

THE fi­nal home game of the Daw­son Val­ley district ju­nior rugby league was held at Theodore last week­end.

It was a great turnout with over 60 kids from Theodore, Bar­al­aba, Woora­binda and Moura play­ing in games for un­der-6 up to un­der-12.

Spe­cial guests on the day were Ash and the Desert to Ocean 2k17 walk crew with their 17 camels in­clud­ing two ba­bies. The crew do­nated their time and camels for rides with the pro­ceeds go­ing to the Theodore Ju­nior Roost­ers.

More than 80 rides were held and the event was well sup­ported by the lo­cals and even a cou­ple of grey no­mads joined the fun.

The Desert to Ocean 2k17 trek was founded by Ash as a way to be­come a walk­ing car­a­van of camels to in­crease aware­ness for sui­cide pre­ven­tion, do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and breast cancer.

They are headed to­wards the Sun­shine Coast with their next town be­ing Eidsvold.
