This week, the Dyldam Parramatta Eels celebrate both the contribution of women to our game, and the incredible work of our Charity Partners in Western Sydney. We call it "My Heroes" Round.
My Heroes Round:
Our three gold Charity Partners Careflight, the Children's Hospital at Westmead and Ronald McDonald House Westmead, are vital parts of our community, and during the week we'll be highlighting their stories online, as well as including them on game day on Saturday, May 16.
As we play a triple-header against the New Zealand Warriors at Pirtek Stadium, we'll be making the Children's Hospital at Westmead and Careflight feel welcome by highlighting the amazing work they do.
And during the game, Ronald McDonald House Westmead will also be busy with the 7 Network running the "Building love" Sydney Telethon. Click through to find out more!
Stay tuned during this week to find out more about the heroes we are proud to work with each and every season.
Women in League Round:
The Harvey Norman Women in League program celebrates and acknowledges the role women play at all levels and in all areas of the Rugby League family. Established in 2007, the Women in League program aims to make women feel proud of their roles and contribution to the game.
Over 400,000 females have a direct connection with Rugby League - whether it is as administrators, players, coaches, employees, volunteers or club members - women really are at the heart of the game. Going in to its ninth year, the culmination of celebrations occurs at the Harvey Norman Women in League Round.
There'll be giveaways and special shout outs to the women in our game, as well as some other surprises we can't reveal just yet, and we can't wait to see you at the game!
