During their recent trip to Toowoomba, the Brisbane Broncos generously gave of their time to visit residents at rehabilitation service Sunrise Way. The team also assisted with raising some much needed funds for the facility.

Sunrise Way CEO Wendy Agar said she could not thank the team enough.

“The visit was a great opportunity to show some of the Broncos players our facility, and talk to them about how Sunrise Way are helping people living with addiction rebuild their lives,” said Wendy.

“The players sat down with the residents and had the opportunity to hear their stories.”

Sunrise Way is a 20 bed not-for-profit rehabilitation service that facilitates a 26 week program. The goal of the program is to enable clients to understand their addiction, manage their mental health, develop skills and strategies to maintain sobriety, and rebuild their lives.

Ms Agar said along with the Broncos visit to Sunrise Way, the team also gave the opportunity for six lucky people to dine with them at The Office on Thursday night.

People were able to bid on the tickets, to raise funds for Sunrise Way. One of the lucky local residents was Peter Cox, who said he and his wife were thrilled to meet the team.

“They are true gentlemen that love their sport, the football community and promoting the sport to young people,” said Peter.

“This was a once in a lifetime experience and one Jo and I will remember for years to come.”
