PAFC Game Day Charity Partner 2023

PAFC Game Day 2023 800x550

Wednesday 16 Aug, 2023

9-year-old cancer survivor, Eamon Obst met with Port Adelaide Football Club players during the week at Alberton and then again at the Captain's Run at Adelaide Oval before leading the team out against the GWS Giants in Round 22, as junior mascot for the Game.

Eamon was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour, a cancer of the kidney primarily found in children, at the age of 3. Eamon and his family have been supported by the Childhood Cancer Association.

A huge PAFC fan, Eamon was able to have a kick with Childhood Cancer ambassador Travis Boak and meet his favourite player, Aliir Aliiir, in a week he will never forget.

You can join Travis in supporting the work that we do by purchasing a pair of gold shoelaces or by giving a “high five” to kids with cancer, with a $5 donation or buy your very own Port Elliot.

Thank you to Travis and the Port Adelaide Football Club for everything you do to support families battling childhood cancer. It means so much.

We'd also like to extend our thanks to supporting collaborator, Adelaide Oval SMA, for having Oval staff wear our beanies and inviting our President to speak at the MTX Club luncheon on Game Day.

It was an amazing day that raised more than $20,000 to support children with cancer, and their families.

Please donate.
