Bulldogs March for White Ribbon
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have joined the local community for the White Ribbon Day march through Lakemba.
The entire first grade squad, coaching and administration staff were on hand, joining members from local organisations and the general public to eliminate violence against women and children.
"It's a cause we as a club and as a playing squad believe in. We are willing to stand up for violence against women," Will Hopoate said.
"It's a really good day. We've marched for the past three years and it's for a good cause," added. Matt Frawley.
Now in its fourth year, the November 25 event organised by Campsie police, is one of Australia’s biggest and draws crowds of up to 3000 people.
Violence against women is still an issue that seriously affects not only our community but Australia as a whole.
"It's a really important issue in society and it's important that we speak up as playing group," said Frawley.
The annual White Ribbon Day march from Lakemba to Punchbowl aims to raise awareness about domestic violence.
