Broncos Peter Wallace and Kurt Baptiste went back to school this morning.
But they weren’t there to study they were promoting a fun-walk, to raise funds for a Mater Hospital program for children with disabilities.
Nathan Filmer reports.
Students at Seton College had some special PE teachers today – a couple of their sporting heroes from the Broncos.
The League Club is helping fund an upcoming charity walk for the Mater’s Little Miracles program.
Peter Wallace, Broncos Player: “Especially when you go see kids and the enjoyment they get out of it. We do a lot of hospital visits and if you can take their mind of it for a little bit, then that’s half the battle.”
Little Miracles has helped many students from the College.
Andrew Gersbach, Father: “The help they gave him and brought him back from where he was after he got that was just great work.”
Bianca Backarach: “Yeah and I’m really thankful that they helped me and I actually appreciate it.”
School principal Chris Raju said the school hoped to raise thousands again this year.
Chris Raju, School Principal: “Last year we raised $12,000 for the M.S. society. And we’ve raised in excess of $110,000 over the last 10 years so we hope to be in the region of $10,000 would be a reasonable target for us.”
The event will be run on various days in early June.
Thousands are expected to flock to locations around South-East Queensland for a fun-filled day of games and entertainment.
The Brisbane walk begins at the City Botanic Gardens on June second.
