Brisbane out-and-about

Brisbane Roar has continued its strong support for the local community after appearing at three different events across the Brisbane region in the past week.

Brisbane Roar has continued its strong support for the local community after appearing at three different events across the Brisbane region in the past week.

First on the list for the Roar was one of Marsden State High-s events of the year - the annual Cross Country/Get Active Day

Over a thousand school children turned out for a day of fun and fitness, with many lining up for a shot at the Roar-s Rapid Fire Field.

“The kids had by far the most fun in the Rapid Fire Field,” Marsden State High Football Co-ordinator Garrath McPherson said.

“The Roar has probably recruited about 900 new fans.”

Mr McPherson also praised the Roar staff for their enthusiasm, saying they were a ‘credit to the club-.

A day later and the Roar crew were back in action at the Easts Junior Rugby Field, helping to launch the State Government-s ‘Positive or it-s Pointless- campaign.

Bringing together the four major football codes for a single initiative, the campaign aims to eliminate unacceptable behaviour amongst fans and players at junior sporting events.

Working from the Roar marquee, staff handed out Roar show bags while popular club mascot Roary kept the crowd amused with his unique brand of entertainment.

And capping off the journey across the city, Roary met new friends and handed out giveaways at the Post School Options expo for students with disabilities and special needs at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
