Footy fever at Mates Weekend

It was footy madness for the boys that attended the Very Special Kids Mates Weekend in May.

The weekend kicked off with a visit from musical legend Greg Champion who entertained the boys with footy songs while they prepared signs for the match they were going to that evening.

Then it was off to the MCG for dinner and to watch the Melbourne vs Sydney game, with Sydney taking the win.

The adventure came to a close the next day with a family BBQ to celebrate Mother’s Day.

The Very Special Kids Mates Weekend for boys was made possible by the generous support of our volunteers, Cooper and Milla’s, Crown Coaches, Melbourne Football Club and Art Cabriolet.

Mates Weekends are designed to bring together children who have high cognitive ability and are facing similar physical challenges. Very Special Kids also runs Mates on the Move Weekends for children that are very mobile and have developmental and intellectual disabilities.
