Manly Warringah Sea Eagles were proud to lend its support at the annual Sargood Foundation luncheon last Friday.
Sargood on Collaroy is a world-first resort, purpose-built for people living with a spinal cord injury as a place to refresh, learn and connect.
The beautiful facility overlooking Collaroy Beach provides people with a spinal cord injury and their families with much-needed respite, refreshment and relaxation. It is also a place of learning, where guests can gain the confidence and skills that empower them to live full and rewarding lives.
Sea Eagles Coach Des Hasler, Manly General Manager of Football John Bonasera, and Sea Eagles legend and Club Ambassador Steve Menzies attended the ‘Something for Sargood’ luncheon at The Beach Club at Collaroy.
“My wife Christine and I have had a long association with the Sargood Foundation. The facility at Sargood on Collaroy is a world class state of the art resort that is actually changing the lives of people who live with spinal cord injury,’’ Hasler said.
“We are very humble and fortunate to be a support mechanism for this foundation.”
Executive Director Sue Johnston said Sargood was very pleased to be involved with the Sea Eagles.
“The Sea Eagles are such a focal point of the Northern Beaches community and to have them involved in Sargood is wonderful. The long term and committed support of Des and Chris Hasler means so much to us all,’’ she said.
Guest speakers at the luncheon included internationally renowned poet Rupert McCall, and gold medal-winning Paralympic sailor Dan Fitzgibbon.
