Leg­ends spark in­ter­est

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE | EDUCATION -

BRON­COS fans have the chance to meet some all-time leg­ends at the an­nual Bron­cos on the Beach lun­cheon on March 29.

This is the third year the event will be held at The Surf Club Mooloolaba, and ex­cite­ment can barely be con­tained.

The Surf Club Mooloolaba market­ing man­ager Saman­tha Bar­rass said the line-up of footy leg­ends is look­ing great this year.

“The guest of hon­our will be Dar­ren Lock­yer with a few of the other greats like Michael Han­cock, Michael De Vere, David Stagg and Jharal Yow Yeh,” she said.

Al­though lots of fun, the event has a mean­ing­ful pur­pose be­hind it.

The funds raised dur­ing the lunch go to­wards a school and foot­ball club kids men­tor­ing pro­gram in part­ner­ship with both The Surf Club Mooloolaba and the Bris­bane Bron­cos.

Bris­bane Bron­cos and Sun­shine Coast game devel­op­ment of­fi­cer Jack Reed said the pro­gram aims to teach kids and teenagers how to make good choices.

“Ini­tially the school pro­grams were fo­cused talk­ing to younger kids about the kind of per­son they were go­ing to de­cide to be and how to eat healthy and make smart choices,” he said.

“But it’s now also grown into a drug and al­co­hol aware­ness pro­gram in high schools with the Queens­land Po­lice to talk about healthy liv­ing and we’ve also started touch­ing on cy­ber safety and cy­ber bul­ly­ing.”
