The RiseForAlex Fund has been established to provide relief to Alex McKinnon after he suffered a devastating spinal injury in March 2014.
The Fund will work to raise funds to provide Alex with ongoing financial and medical support, allowing Alex to focus on his recovery and rehabilitation.
"I am very pleased to advise that the RiseForAlex Fund is up and running and ready to accept donations,” RiseForAlex fund Chairman, Terry Lawler said.
“It has been a busy couple of months putting everything together but I'm thrilled that we can now commence fundraising for Alex to support his ongoing rehabilitation and medical care.
"We are working closely with Alex and looking forward to our first major fundraiser with the NRL over Round 19 of the NRL competition.
“I would encourage everyone to get behind this great cause and RiseForAlex.”
The RiseForAlex Fund is now ready to accept donations and the easiest way to donate is via the fund website which is being launched very soon at WWW.RISEFORALEX.ORG.AU.
Please note, anyone who has contacted the Club previously to register a fundraiser will be contacted and advised how to make their donation.
Stay tuned for the launch of the RiseForAlex website, which will provide a simple donate option as well as all the details for RiseForAlex in Round 19.
