The annual event raises money for seriously ill children and their families through the Ronald McDonald House Charities and this is the third year Brisbane Roar have been involved.

Meanwhile, Brisbane-s charity activities have also gone international ollowing a recent trip by the Australian Defence Force to the Solomon Islands.

The tour left Australia in early September and prior to their departure, liaised with Brisbane Roar to help out local club, Lighthouse Lighthouse.

Like many football clubs in the Solomon Islands, Lighthouse Lighthouse could not afford basic football equipment and many of the kids from the club had never worn proper football jerseys.

Captain John Spencer from the Australian Army and Henry Fa-aroda, former captain of the Soloman Islands national football team and good friend of Brisbane midfielder Massimo Murdocca, were in charge of the distribution of the football equipment.

Ecstatic with their new gear, which included Roar jerseys, posters, caps, wristbands, posters and magazines, the young footballers said they would wear the orange with pride when competing against other teams from around the Islands.
