Sharks supporting Sylvanvale

The Sharks will throw their support behind Fun in the Sun, a fundraising initiative of Westpac Bank and Sylvanvale with NRL squad members Ricky Leutele, Fa’amanu Brown and Saul Houma to be at Dunningham Park at Cronulla from 10am for the special event.

A day to support people with a disability to raise much-needed funds to improve mobility, nutrition, strength and wellbeing, proudly sponsored by Westpac, Fun in the Sun begins at 9.00am at Wanda Surf Club for the start of a sponsored walk to Dunningham Park.

The walk will be followed by a carnival running from 9.30am until 4.00pm, with loads of activities, including a reptile zoo, jumping castle, face painting, food stalls, music and much more.

The three Sharks NRL stars will interact with the crowd and man a pass the ball station from 10 until 11.00am.

Proceeds from the day will go towards Sylvanvale’s Moving with Life campaign, which helps provide people with a disability with access to therapeutic equipment, as well as specialised training and nutrition programs to help combat the extra health concerns they face.

Alan Bish, CEO of Sylvanvale was looking forward to the event and encouraged as many people as possible to come along, support the day and enjoy some ‘Fun in the Sun’.

“We are delighted to be working with Westpac and for all their support on what will be a great day out for a very important cause,” Bish said.

With a head office based at Kirrawee, Sylvanvale is committed to providing a better quality of life for people with an intellectual disability. They support over 600 people and offer high quality, safe, individualised services to clients, families and communities across Sydney and the Blue Mountains.
