MRP is awarded a $25,000 grant from the Coca Cola Australia Foundation

We are thrilled to announce that GingerCloud’s Modified Rugby Program has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Coca Cola Australia Foundation (CCAF) to expand the MRP Colts to include 3 new teams in 2018.

This will bring the total number of MRP Colts teams to four, including our pilot team at Wests Bulldogs, for the 2018 MRP season.

The MRP Colts, the newest division of the MRP, matches young adults with learning and perceptual disabilities between 14 and 18 with university-aged PlayerMentors.

Megan Elliott Managing Director of GingerCloud Foundation and the Co-founder of the MRP said CCAF’s support will offer more opportunities for young adults to get involved in the MRP.
