A little bit of context

Can you imagine how it feels not to be able to have fun and play with your family and friends like an able bodied kid?

Being part of the Rolling Stars team, Brodie and Tyson are 15 year-old twins who for the first time in their lives have been able to play Wheelchair Aussie Rules Football together. Once in a life opportunity they are having fun and competing at the national championships.

Before Rolling Stars came to their lives, Brodie would always watch Tyson playing Aussie Rules football. It was always his dream to play and compete with his brother. However, because of his disability, this could not have been possible. With Rolling Stars coming to their lives, gratitude and happiness go beyond words for the opportunity provided to Brodie to compete in the national championships with his brother Tyson.

Brodie lives with cerebral palsy and he is permanently in a wheelchair and Tyson is an able bodied, who has been supporting his brother while having fun.

Their team have already won all the national championships since the beginning of the sport. However, Rolling Stars needs AU$18,000 in order to cover all the following expenses:

  • Travel
  • Accommodation
  • Medical Support
  • New Equipment
  • Uniforms

With your donation they are going to be able to have the opportunity to compete and defend this title once again.

But there’s a problem

There is no government support. This is normally funded by the families of the team members. Brodie and his twin Tyson are the only teenagers that play.

Here’s what we’re doing about it

We are raising funds for the team to acheive this goal. The team needs your support, please help.

We are raising AU$18,000 which will go towards; travel, accommodation, medical support, new equipment and uniforms costs.
