Bradford Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul, a trustee of the club’s official charity (No.1106608), will join fellow fundraisers to partake in a host of charity events from February to November of next year – including a skydive from thousands of feet!
Hunter-Paul and colleagues will take part in a tandem skydive, a firewalk and a world-record attempt, amongst many more activities.
The ‘Big 10’ also sees the return of the ‘Sleep Out’, after the success of the 2014 challenge, which saw over £11,000 raised for Centrepoint and the Bradford Bulls Foundation.
The Bradford Bulls Foundation exists to provide positive activities and experiences to adults and children, regardless of gender, religious belief, cultural heritage or ability.
The Foundation uses the power of Bradford Bulls and sport to educate, motivate and inspire the local community.
Over 40,000 people have benefited from The Bradford Bulls Foundation, which is based at the Provident Stadium, Odsal, this year, with over 1,000 individuals invited to take part in gameday activities.
“The year 2015 will see The Bradford Bulls Foundation celebrate 10 years of making a positive difference in Bradford,” said Hunter-Paul.
“To commemorate this milestone I want to invite you to join me and other Bradford personalities in ‘Robbie’s Big 10’.
“The series of charity events and activities will see funds raised to support the development of rugby league for children in our region – alongside supporting a host of other local and national charities.”
Foundation Manager Mark Winder added: “Our mission is to ignite enthusiasm and passion to replace low self-esteem, limited ambitions, anti-social behaviour and exclusion with positive lifestyles, healthy nutrition, education and caring about others.
“We foster confident self-expression and heightened horizons in innovative and exciting ways.
“In order to be a successful instrument of change we ensure we involve our community in our decision-making processes and activities.
“In short, we are fully committed to helping communities to be more than they thought they could be.”
