Terry Litton is the captain, founder and spiritual leader of the Titans Physical Disabilities Rugby League team.
The league-loving Ballina local has played footy all his life, despite being blind in one eye, and only having partial sight in the other.
In 2011, Terry had a craniotomy to repair a brain aneurysm. Shortly after the procedure, he suffered a stroke and fits.
Courageously though, Terry was determined that his medical setbacks would never diminish his love of the game, nor his desire to play.
I saw (PDRL) played in Sydney, and I went and played a few games down in Sydney and I thought there’s a lot of boys up around our area, the Northern Rivers and the Gold Coast that could be doing this and get them out of their comfort zones and playing football. We got a great response, and we are building all the timeTerry Litton
Terry yesterday joined the team at 102.9 Hot Tomato on-air to tell his story, promote the Titans PDRL team and urge Gold Coasters to contribute during the final days of the Titans Community Kick-In fundraiser.
“It was a great moment to be there and to talk about PDRL on the Gold coast with the Titans,” he said. “We are building, and we are going really well.”
The inaugural Titans Community Kick-in closes at midnight on Sunday 21 July, but there are still plenty of ways for Gold Coasters to play their part, show their support and ensure the Titans are able to continue – and expand – their amazing community programs.
Lloyds Auctions are running a Titans super auction, with 10 fantastic prizes and club experiences up for grabs with all money raised going to the Titans Community Kick-In to help the people in our community that need it the most.
