WRFL SET TO SOCKIT2MND

SOCK IT FROM THE POCKET
We are asking you to SOCK IT FROM THE POCKET.
Whether you are at training, going for a quick kick or attending a game of footy, get someone to take a video of you kicking a goal from the pocket with your goal celebration and go in the running to win a Sherrin prize.
If you have the blue Sockit2MND socks make sure you are wearing them, but if you don’t have the socks, don’t worry you can still get involved.
Send the video to WRFL Media Manager Kristen Alebakis – firstname.lastname@example.org and include all your contact details.

Clubs are encouraged to wear the Sockit2MND socks or hold a fundraiser around the club such as a raffle to help raise funds for FightMND.
