Nearly 12 months ago the Gold Coast Titans launched 'Titans Together' with the aim to Care, Include, Unite and Inspire.
The Titans Foundation uses the popularity and profile of rugby league and the Gold Coast Titans to create a better life for our people in the community and is driving change through the power of positive action.
As the one-year anniversary of Titans Together nears (February 4, 2021), we take a look back at the work done across one of the four key pillars of the foundation - inclusion.
The aim of Titans Together is to make rugby league the greatest game - for all.
In doing this, the Club is extremely proud of the Physical Disability and Intellectual Disability Rugby League Teams (Leagueability) and the various supporting inclusion programs.
From its establishment in 2018 with just 11 players to now boasting 40+ participants, the Leaguability teams have gained a strong following across the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers community.
The PDRL team is led by Craig Wallace, father of current Titans player, Jarrod, who says the players are keen to get back on the field after COVID interrupted their 2020 season plans.
“We made such great strides in 2019, it was a shame to halt the momentum, but with the enthusiasm our players have for rugby league we knew they would be straight back into it at the first opportunity.” Said Wallace.
Thank You round Jarrod Wallace
It is not just rugby league-related activities where the support stops though.
From supporting the Disabled Surfing Association of Australia to Down Syndrome Queensland, with the Down Syndrome run-out event and Touch Football specialised, Titans Together works to include all within the Gold Coast community.
Titans players, coaching and administration staff are proud to support such valuable programs that allow people the opportunity to participate in main stream activities.
