Many of these events take place on the stolen and occupied lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation.
AWF acknowledge that sovereignty over this land was never ceded and endeavour to pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging.
AWF & friends are proud to support HAYS’ Headspace Fundraiser.
Headspace provides mental health services for young adults Australia-wide.
Thursday May 9, HAYS will be holding a Headspace fundraiser the Melbourne Bowls Club.
AWF have donated a prize to be raffled off at the event. All money raised will be matched by HAYS to effectively double the amount raised for Headspace.
Like Headspace, AWF & friends believe that physical exercise can play an important part in being psychologically healthy, and seek to lessen the stigma around mental health issues.
Starting out in the Northern ‘burbs of Melbourne, Bushrangers were the first official LGBTIQA+ basketball club entered into women’s basketball comps in Victoria.
The excitement around a women’s basketball team who welcomes trans women, non-binary, LGBTIQA+, soon spawned a second Northern team, a third team in the Southern ‘burbs, and a fourth in Brisbane.
Bushrangers Basketball Victoria are now inviting those who live in both the East and West of Melbourne to ‘Come Out And Play!’
Much like AWF, the Bushies are an inclusive club aimed at creating safe spaces for female and non-binary basketballers, who may face discrimination or a lack of acceptance elsewhere.
And what we at AWF love even more, is that the Bushies are less interested in hard-nosed competition and more interested in getting active, encouraging one another, and having FUN.
In addition to providing Bushrangers Basketball team members with cross-training opportunities, AWF is proud to have donated a one month Rebel Pass membership to be auctioned off at the Bush-Fund-Ranger event.
Come along to the Fox Hotel, Wellington St Collingwood on Saturday May 11 from 6pm; for female DJs, silent auction, and discounted memberships – all for FREE ENTRY!
