The Wally Foreman Foundation (WFF) is excited to announce the third instalment of the Wally Foreman Corporate Canter will be held this month as a curtain-raiser ahead of the Round 10 AFL Premiership Season match between the West Coast Eagles and GWS Giants at Domain Stadium on Sunday 28 May.
The Foundation extends its sincere thanks to West Coast, its staff and its Board for supporting the charity and its initiative by providing this opportunity to Canter participants.
The Corporate Canter – an annual light-hearted relay aimed at drawing out the friendly competition of the corporate sector – is the flagship event of the WFF and has received strong support over the first two years of running, having last year been held in front of a crowd of 4000 people as the opening event to Athletics Australia and Athletics WA's Perth Track Classic.
The Foundation is thrilled to this year provide participants with the opportunity and excitement of taking part in the event on the big stage of the AFL, on-ground at Domain Stadium before bouncedown, followed by a seat at the game.
Expressions of Interest
The Wally Foreman Foundation welcomes enquiries from organisations interested in submitting a team for inclusion in either the upcoming Corporate Canter, or for future events.
Team entry is $2000 and enquiries can be made via event coordinator Sam Maxwell (firstname.lastname@example.org | +61 438 842 123) for nominations or further information.
In addition to taking part in the unique opportunity of running on a professional sports ground, minutes out from the start of an AFL game, participants will also be provided with a ticket to watch the match between two likely-finals contenders.
Teams are encouraged to wear their organisation’s polo/branded attire to maximise the opportunity.
Wally Foreman Foundation
WFF aspires to continue the work of respected sports broadcaster and administrator Wally Foreman, who was a strong and tireless advocate for West Australian athletes and coaches, before his passing in 2006 from a heart attack.
The Foundation, through its activities and the generous support of the community, raises funds to support athletes and coaches who are not covered by existing scholarships in their pursuit of sporting excellence.
The tremendous and ongoing support of organisations such as the Carbine Club, an inaugural and consistent benefactor, has helped the Foundation issue 39 scholarships since its inception, which are presented at the WA Institute of Sport Annual Dinner.
Applications for this year's round of scholarships will open towards the end of August to early September.
