Vodafone Warriors players and staff joined 10 children from the Child Cancer Foundation and their families to celebrate the 2018 edition of Wig Wednesday.
The visitors were shown around the club's facilities, received Vodafone Warriors packs, watched training and had fun meeting the team afterwards, the players getting right in the mood with Simon Mannering, Tohu Harris, Adam Blair and Sam Lisone all captured wearing a wig for photos with the kids.
Wig Wednesday is an annual, nationwide fundraiser for the Child Cancer Foundation.
Now in its third year, Wig Wednesday attracted registrations from more than 460 schools and businesses around the country this time.
Thousands of kids and adults donned wigs on Wednesday, June 20 fundraising for Kiwi kids with cancer. Child Cancer Foundation receives no direct government funding and has to fundraise to maintain its support service to hundreds of families nationwide.
Every week three kids are diagnosed with cancer in New Zealand.
Childhood cancer doesn't just affect the child diagnosed. It affects their brothers and sisters, mum, dad, and whānau. Child Cancer Foundation supports them all. Right now, Child Cancer Foundation is supporting more than 1700 families across New Zealand and has been there for thousands more over the past 40 years.
Child Cancer Foundation helps each family navigate the child cancer journey – no matter what the outcome – giving them support, strength and helping them maintain hope.
