Inspired by a trip she took to Uluru, Brown painted an intricate design on a retired surfboard used in the local surf and then asked the Central Coast-based NRL team to sign their names on the back of the board.

She took the board to Auckland to hand over to the Vodafone Warriors at Mount Smart Stadium.
