Shaw and Partners support inaugural Gotcha4Life Cup

The important issue of mental fitness will be at the forefront of the inaugural Gotcha4Life Cup at 4 Pines Park on Thursday, July 28.

And some of rugby league’s biggest names are right behind the Round 20 match between the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles and the Sydney Roosters, who will play for the Gotcha4Life Cup to help raise funds and awareness of building mental fitness.

The Sea Eagles have been supported by Premier Partner Shaw and Partners Financial Services, who will be donating $100,000 to the Gotcha4Life Foundation in honour of this game.

We’re proud to be partnering with the Sea Eagles and Gotcha4Life Foundation on this important initiative, and to do what we can to help educate and empower Australians on taking positive action towards their own mental fitness

Earl Evans Co-CEO of Shaw and Partners

Gotcha4Life is a not-for-profit foundation with a goal of zero suicides, taking action by delivering mental fitness programs that engage, educate and empower schools, sporting clubs, workplaces and community groups.

The Gotcha4Life logo will be displayed below the Shaw and Partners logo on the Manly Sea Eagles special jerseys for this Round. These jerseys, donated by Dynasty Sport, will then be auctioned off after the game to raise more funds for Gotcha4Life.

The reason these two teams will now play for the Gotcha4life Cup is that we have ambassadors in both sides in James Tedesco and Sam Verrills from the Roosters, and Daly Cherry Evans and the Trbojevic brothers for Manly

Gus Worland Gotcha4Life Founder

“Having my team the Roosters against my Gotcha4life mate Hugh Jackman’s team will be awesome. We’ve been watching our teams play each other since the early 70s. We’ve spent many days at ‘Brookie’ and the old Sydney Sports Ground munching on pies and running for the corner post at full-time.”

Beyond a bit of friendly rivalry on and off the field, Worland said there’s a message he wants everyone to take home from the match.

“The key thing we want everyone who watches this match to take away is that mental fitness is as important as physical fitness. You need to train to be your best and it really helps to have a coach,’’ Worland added.

“When we talk about training, from a mental fitness point-of-view, we’re talking about anything you do to ensure that you’re in a good mental state to overcome the stresses and challenges that everyday life throws at us”.

“This game is special. We’re all on the same team off the field fighting mental health and fitness concerns,’’ Tom Trbojevic said.

“A lot of people go through many different challenges. If you don’t have that strong mate group, it’s harder to get through.

“It’s really important to make sure you go beyond someone saying they’re good to find out how they’re really feeling. People often put on a on a front. It’s important that we break that down to address any issues they may have.”
