Rise for Alex McKinnon
28 April 2014
Canterbury and the Bulldogs rallied together to show their support for recently injured Newcastle Knight, Alex McKinnon.
In the week leading up to the Bulldogs’ Round 8 game against the Knights, donation boxes were put out around the club for patrons to show their support. Canterbury also contributed another $10,000 to the 'Rise for Alex' fundraiser.
Fans were more than happy to help out with donations when the Bulldogs sent around collection tins during the Saturday game – raising over $3,500.
Another $10,000 came from major Bulldogs sponsor, Jaycar Electronics. Overall $25,000 was raised and the cheque was handed to the Knights at the post-game presentation. The funds will go towards Alex’s rehabilitation program to help him recover.
