For the past twelve years, Hawthorn Football Club has been a huge supporter of Beyond Blue, each year dedicating a game as the AFL Beyond Blue Cup.
This year, Hawthorn will take on West Coast Eagles on Saturday 29 June at the MCG for the 2019 AFL Beyond Blue Cup. This is an afternoon fixture.
The annual Beyond Blue Cup aims to raise funds, smash stigma and increase awareness of anxiety, depression and suicide prevention in the community.
This year’s AFL Beyond Cup theme is: ‘Talking about mental health is the game changer’ and aims to encourage people to have the conversation about their own mental health and those around them.
We are looking for around 100 volunteers to help before the match by handing out Beyond Blue wristbands, collecting donations and chatting to people attending the game.
Volunteers will receive a free ticket into the game afterwards as well as up to $30 in reimbursements to cover the costs of transport, parking, food and drinks for the day.
Date: Saturday 29 June
Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground
Time: 11.30am - 2pm
