The Roosters recently joined forces with the NRL to deliver a fun, high energy League Stars program to the children at the Ronald McDonald House, Randwick.
The non-contact, skill-based program is currently being delivered at the Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC) over a six-week period to children receiving treatment and their siblings living away from home.
RMHC houses provide a home away from home for parents, guardians, carers and their siblings to stay while their child is undergoing treatment at a nearby hospital.
NRLW Sydney Roosters Players Vanessa Foliaki and Zahara Temara joined NRL Game Development Staff to run the program, and provided tips to the enthusiastic, young children.
Programs such as League Stars provide the children with a much-needed break from their treatment and hospital stay and it was evident by the smiles on the faces of the children that they enjoyed their time with the NRLW Superstars.
Following the program, Foliaki and Temara received an extensive tour of the Ronald McDonald House situated on the Prince of Wales Hospital Campus.
“I had no idea how much support Ronald McDonald House provides to families during their stay,” said Temara.
“From education spaces, play areas, accommodation and large kitchens, I am amazed at the level of support the families receive.
“We had such a good time meeting the families here at the House, and hope we have given them a break from their time in hospital.”
NRL Game Development Staff will continue to run the program for free to the young children who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House.
