Hayden Trask from Noosa Pirates said it was an honour to be a part of the Rotary initiative.
Mental health and PTSD has touched so many people in today’s society and has touched me personally, as well as those close to me,” Hayden said.

Will Christie of the Dolphins said, “Playing at the Dolphins provides excellent opportunities for further progress on the field, but also off the field in regards to our player welfare program, which looks after our players in so many ways.”

Corey Dodson of Lions said, “One of the things that soccer has given me is the friendship you get from mates on the pitch. My mates at the Lions have helped me so much when an issue that impacted my life happened.” 

Noosa Tigers captain Aaron Laskey said, “It makes me proud to be a member of the Tigers footy team, and the plans from our club to build the mental health hub that will help everybody in the communityOur footy club is to be commended for doing this.”
