The Ormeau Bulldogs AFL Club Honours Wayne "Senior" Fogden with "The Big Game of Footy" Charity Event - Sat 20th April 2024

In the heart of Ormeau, where community spirit and sportsmanship intertwine, the Ormeau Bulldogs AFL Club is setting the stage for an unprecedented charity event, hosted on the 20th April, "The Big Game of Footy." This monumental day isn't just about the love of the game; it's a heartfelt tribute to a legendary member, Wayne "Senior" Fogden, whose battle with brain cancer came to a poignant end.

Wayne was more than a club member; he was a cornerstone of the Bulldogs family. His passion for the game, coupled with an unwavering commitment to the club, left an indelible mark on its ethos and values. Wayne's legacy is a tapestry of dedication, resilience, and an enduring love for AFL that the Bulldogs aim to celebrate and honor through this event.

"The Big Game of Footy" is more than a match; it's a day where the community comes together for a cause that hits close to home. In partnership with The Mark Hughes Foundation, a beacon of hope and support for those affected by brain cancer, the Bulldogs aim to raise both awareness and funds. This foundation, known for its comprehensive support and research initiatives, mirrors the strength and courage Wayne "Senior" Fogden exemplified throughout his life and battle with brain cancer.

The event will feature a series of AFL matches, involving players from various age groups and skill levels, embodying the inclusive spirit Wayne always promoted. Beyond the field, the day will be filled with activities for all ages, from face painting and jumping castles for the little ones to live music and gourmet food trucks for the adults. It's a day designed to bring smiles, laughter, and a sense of unity – all in the name of a beloved member and a vital cause.

What sets "The Big Game of Footy" apart is its commitment to not just commemorating Wayne's legacy but actively contributing to the fight against brain cancer. Every ticket sold, every merchandise item bought, and every donation made will go directly to The Mark Hughes Foundation, aiding in their mission to find a cure and offer support to those in need.

This event also serves as a call to action, reminding us of the importance of community support, the strength found in collective effort, and the impact we can make when we unite for a cause greater than ourselves. Wayne "Senior" Fogden's legacy is a powerful motivator, urging us to give generously, support passionately, and love deeply.

As the Ormeau Bulldogs AFL Club prepares for "The Big Game of Footy," it's clear this event is more than a day on the calendar; it's a beacon of hope, a celebration of life, and a testament to the enduring spirit of Wayne "Senior" Fogden. Join us in honoring his memory, supporting a noble cause, and experiencing the power of community and AFL at its very best.
