Nominations are now open for the 13th anniversary of the Philips Sports Dad of the Year award. Your nominations will help select the 10 finalists for this year’s award, with the winner announced on Father’s Day.
Last years’ award was won by our very own captain Adam Reynolds who donated his winnings to Save Our Sons, a charity helping fund research into Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy.
We recently spoke with Save Our Sons founder Elie Eid and asked him where Adam’s donation was use.
“The foundation used the funds to continue the development for ‘Best Practice’ clinical care within its Nurse Program, and to support bringing clinical trials to Australia. We are so thankful and grateful to Adam, his support helps us continue to provide services that will benefit the entire Duchenne and Becker community” said Elie.
Adam went onto say “They are a foundation that works extremely hard to improve the quality of life of those with the condition and hopefully one day a cure can be found”
The Award recognises sporting fathers who make positive impressions in the community, with previous winners donating up to $10,000 to their charity of choice.
