VIDEO: Community Carnival Wrap
Earlier in the week, Bulldogs players took the NRL's Wellbeing message to their local community.
Around 30 of our fulltime squad participated in this important educational program delivering messages of how to live a living a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of goal setting.
The Dogs players spoke to the kids about the importance of getting enough sleep, staying hydrated and eating properly.
Speaking from Condell Park Primary School, Morris praised the work done by the Club in the local community and how the messages of healthy living was being communicated to Primary School children.
"It's good to get out in the community and go to different schools in the Bulldogs area," Morris said.
"It's important to spread the message of wellbeing, because as a young kid you need to make sure you’re doing the right things in regards to your sleep and hydration.
"If we can pass on some of our knowledge to the young kids, hopefully it can make a difference."
Five-eight Josh Reynolds was joined by new recruit Will Hopoate at Wiley Park Public School to share their thoughts on living a healthy life.
"It was good to get amongst the community, especially the kids and share the wellbeing message," said Hopoate.
