Sharks Launch Go Fund Me Page for R U OK Game

The St Kilda Sharks Women’s Football Club are one of the longest standing women’s football clubs in the Victorian Women’s Football League. This year we are celebrating our 25th season.

We are one of the highest registered female clubs in the state boasting three senior women’s teams and are growing every year. However, like the rest of society our players and their families are not immune to common occurences of mental health concerns and have recently had our Shark family affected greatly by a number of family members passing away through suicide.

Women’s AFL is a growing force in the media and the Sharks would like to use our profile and our great game to promote the amazing cause that is R U Okay Day. Our hope is that we can compete against one of our great rivals and respected opposition for the R U Okay Cup and any funds raised on that day can go directly to the R U OK Day campaign.

We would like to commence raising some funds to purchase special playing guernseys for the day in respect of our passed family members and with the gold colouring of R U Okay.

This day of celebration will take place on July 10th and any funds we are able to make over the costs of guernseys and purchases to make the day a memorable one will go directly back into the R U Okay fundraising campaign to further promote their great cause.

We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to read this and hopefully add any amount small or large towards this campaign. I know that the Sharks are more than a club, they are themselves a family and our members would be forever greatful with your support of something that has affected them deeply.

Please help us by sharing this post and ask your friends, your family, people you may not even know. R U Okay? You have the chance to make a huge difference to someones life.
