Brisbane Roar continued its strong support for Sporting Wheelies- cerebral palsy football program yesterday with a visit to young Karime Bayles at the Royal Children-s Hospital.

Eleven-year-old Karime is in hospital following an operation which will hopefully allow him to play football for an extended period of time.

The football fanatic, who suffers from cerebral palsy, used to require walking sticks to play football but improved since joining the football program and has been able to play for up to 10 minutes unaided.

Roary popped into hospital yesterday to pay Karime a visit and give him a Brisbane Roar pack.

The Roar has proudly supported the cerebral palsy football program for some time, inviting goalkeeper Richard Radley to join Liam Reddy and Griffin McMaster at a training session.

Last week Roary attended a sausage sizzle hosted by Sporting Wheelies, where he handed out tickets to the Sydney game on Sunday.

At the game, Hinksy and Bossy spoke to Jarrod Larkins Law on the big screen, after the youngster was selected to represent Australia at the Paralympic Youth Games in October this year.
