Tony Spence is a proud supporter of the game of Rugby League in Western Australia.
A stalwart Joondalup Giants man, he has forged strong bonds and friendships through the game of rugby league. His family are a part of the fabric of what makes our game and community so great. And yet, for many years now, he has also been fighting for a cause which is affecting hundreds of thousands of people world-wide.
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness that gets worse over time. There’s no cure for MND, but there are treatments to help reduce the impact it has on a person’s daily life. Some people live with the condition for many years.
On June 11th, the NRL WA will be running an MND Awareness Round, to spread awareness of the disease and hopefully raise some much needed funds to help those who suffer from this affliction.
At Blueforce Park, the North Beach Sea Eagles vs Joondalup Giants Fuel To Go & Play Premiership Fixture to be played for the Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA Trophy. It will have extra significance this year with a long time North Beach supporter and player Dean Williams tragically losing his battle with MND this year. There will be a stall where people can show their support for MND research on the day as well.
But on June 12th.
At Admiral Park, Heathridge.
At the home of the Joondalup Giants.
Tony will also be attempting a world record.
