Footy chiefs join drop
FOUR West Australian Football League club chief executives will take the Central Park Plunge in September, with one signing up before he knew it meant dangling off the 52nd floor of a building.
West Perth Football Club’s David Crute, Perth Football Club’s Marty Atkins, South Fremantle’s Tom Bottrell and Subiaco Football Club’s Peter Capes will abseil 220 metres down the side of the Central Park building on St Georges Terrace to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer. They will join 296 others who will abseil from September 8 to 10 and donate to one of four charities.
Prostate Cancer Foundation WA state manager Nadine Magill said prostate cancer was the most common cancer in Australia.
She said the abseil raised almost $1 million in the last two years for WA charities.
Marty Atkins, Tom Bottrell, Peter Capes and David Crute will take the plunge.
