A number of Rabbitohs players, led by John Sutton, Jason Clark and Luke Burgess, will be taking part in a 24 Hour Run to help support Suicide Prevention Australia.
On the 7th and 8th of June, participants will be taking the opportunity to test themselves by taking on the huge task of continually running on a treadmill for 24 hours to raise vital funds for Suicide Prevention Australia.
