The Bulldogs relationship with Camp Quality continues to blossom in season 2013 with special guests from Camp Quality once again performing integral roles on game day including the exclusive coin toss and forming the guard of honour.
In round one the Bulldogs welcomed with open arms two very special guests from Camp Quality’s Newcastle office and locals of the Central Coast – eleven year old Roan Brown and seven year old Damon Burgess.
Not even six days in hospital could stop Roan performing the season opener coin toss with Captain’s Mick Ennis and Jonathon Thurston with Roan only being discharged from the Children’s hospital at Westmead the morning of the game.
Roan was quick to capture the attention of Mick and JT with the Cowboy captain’s famous laugh being heard down the tunnel. Roan, his sister and friend were excited to have a picture with Mick and JT before the players had to leave to finish their final preparations.
Roan and co were joined by the Burgess Brothers (the Bulldogs version) a short time later to take their place for the guard of honour and meet Bulldogs furry friend Chase for a pat and a photo. The group was also joined by injured Bulldogs forward James Graham who had a long chat with the kids in the tunnel area and had lots of photos with them.
The Bulldogs are thrilled to have Camp Quality kids play a role in all of our 2013 home games with the upcoming round four Easter Friday blockbuster versus the South Sydney Rabbitohs dedicated to our good friends at Camp Quality. Bulldogs player’s will once again don the traditional yellow socks and a number of activities will be taking part on the day so be sure to come along and support a great cause!
