As part of the NRL’s RiseForAlex round, Hunter stadium will feature the Knights verses Titans game, a concert by Jessica Mauboy and lots of RiseForAlex merchandise for sale with all funds going to the RiseForAlex Fund.
As I am sure you are aware, in March this year Newcastle Knights forward Alex McKinnon suffered a severe injury playing in Round 3 of the Telstra Premiership competition. Alex suffered a career ending and life changing injury after fracturing his C4 and C5 vertebrae in a tackle.
To support Alex and his family, Round 19 of the Telstra Premiership Competition will be referred to as the RiseForAlex Round. During the round, fans and the wider public will be asked to donate to the RiseForAlex Fund, which has been set up to provide ongoing medical and financial support to Alex.
If you can not attend the game, it’s really easy for supporters to donate online, too, at https://riseforalex.org.au/donate/
