The Gold Coast Titans’ connection and commitment to the local community has been taken to a new level this morning with the official launch of “Titans Together”.
Since the birth of the Gold Coast Titans back in 2007, the Club has been driven by its commitment to the local community.
That commitment has seen the Titans Community Foundation raise more than $3.5 million dollars in donations, and invest just short of 21,000 hours, to create a better life for the people of the local community.
Today launches a new era for that commitment, as the Titans Community Foundation officially becomes Titans Together.
Using the popularity and profile of rugby league, the Gold Coast Titans are driven to create a better life for the people of our community, driving change through the power of positive action.
As Titans Together, we will Care, Include, Unite and Inspire.
At a star-studded event at Kurrawa Surf Lifesaving Club, hosted by Fox League’s Yvonne Sampson, the Titans launched Titans Together with a demonstration of four of the long-term programs currently run to improve the lives of people in our community: Deadly Futures, Disabled Surfing, Touch Football Specialised and Titans LeagueAbility.
The launch was capped with the presentation of a cheque for more than $70,000 to Titans Together from Spano’s IGA, The Sunland Group, Lloyds Auctions and Haydn Chambers to support the initiative and the programs involved.
Run in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, all donations to Titans Together are used to drive a range of community projects across Indigenous education, inclusion projects like Physical Disabilities rugby league, as well as development, participation and high-performance football programs.
“Community has always been at the heart of this Club,” said Titans Executive Chairman Dennis Watt.
“Anyone who has witnessed the hard work and results achieved over many years by the Titans Community Foundation would attest that the work done by the Titans in supporting the people of their community is not just among the best in the NRL, but world-class.
“If you needed further evidence, you only need listen to the inspiring stories of the people who have been involved in these programs and the life-changing – and in some cases, life-saving – influence the Titans community staff have had on them and their families.
“Being a Titan is about more than wearing the jersey. Everyone involved in these programs is inspired to give back to their community, and be part of something greater.
“We are indeed fortunate that we have so many businesses, big and small, and like-minded individuals who share this Club’s vision to make a better life for the people in our community.
“This is what it means to be Titans Together.”
