Annual Play for Heart Day
The Play for Heart Day was initiated in 2011 by the Macedon and Gisborne Junior Football Clubs in honour of Steve Simpson affectionately known as “Mr Football” who passed away suddenly at a training session with the Gisborne Club in February 2011. Since its inception Riddells Creek Football Club have also joined this special day. It has run annually since inception.
Funds are raised through a gold coin donation entry fee and a BBQ run by the clubs. The aim of the day is to be a great social day between the clubs; for the kids to enjoy a game of footy; to promote active lifestyles and to provide an opportunity for them to remember Steve and his contribution to junior football. For MRH it is a great opportunity to be involved in the football community and we are very grateful to receive the funding which supports health service delivery in the local community.
