GIANTS Net­ball

star Kristina Brice is coming to Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life.

The goal-shoot­ing mae­stro was one of the GIANTS’ key of­fen­sive weapons in 2017, help­ing her team reach the grand fi­nal of the in­au­gu­ral Sun­corp Su­per Net­ball com­pe­ti­tion. The 23-year-old, who has been play­ing net­ball for 14 years, said she felt her game had reached an­other level in 2017.

Brice said the 2017 Hawkes­bury event would be her first time par­tic­i­pat­ing in Re­lay For Life. She was look­ing for­ward to meet­ing mem­bers of the Hawkes­bury com­mu­nity and talk­ing to them about their ex­pe­ri­ences while en­cour­ag­ing younger par­tic­i­pants to take up net­ball.

Brice said she hoped by par­tic­i­pat­ing in Re­lay For Life and sup­port­ing Cancer Coun­cil she could help give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity. “I try to do­nate as much as pos­si­ble to Cancer Coun­cil,” she said.

Brice will be walk­ing with Re­lay For Life par­tic­i­pants at the Hawkes­bury Show­ground from 11am to 1pm on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9. The 2017 Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life will boast a full pro­gram of en­ter­tain­ment for young and old alike.

There will be live mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment on­stage from 10.15am to 10pm on Satur­day, in­clud­ing per­for­mances from Don’t Think Twice, Tom Wil­liams Moore, Shan­non, Rough Stock, The Blag­gards, Will and Garth, Shan­non Kenny Break­down, Rogue Syn­di­cate and the Orca Band. A one-stop shop health expo will op­er­ate from 10am to 2pm, pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion from health pro­fes­sion­als and sup­port groups.
