Red Nose is pleased to announce a new partnership with Big Bash League cricket’s red team, Melbourne Renegades. We’re excited to #GetonRed this summer.
The Renegades are dedicating their Saturday 8 January KFC BBL twilight clash with Sydney Thunder to Red Nose.
Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium will be a sea of red for the first-ever Red Nose charity match, with dozens of Red Nose volunteers taking to the stands, handing out red noses and encouraging fans to donate and help save little lives.
All money raised will go toward vital Red Nose programs, including our 24/7 Support Line for families. Funds will also go toward our safe sleep education programs and current research into stillbirth prevention.
Red Nose Australia CEO Keren Ludski said the new Renegades partnership and first charity match are a great way to connect with Aussie cricket fans, including men who might not know about the kind of support Red Nose can provide to them in the face of tragedy.
Quotes from Keren Ludski CEO Red Nose Australia
“We are so excited to be joining forces with the Melbourne Renegades. And while we do both share a love for the colour red, what really brings us together is our shared commitment to supporting Aussie families in their greatest time of need.
“Red Nose helps many grieving families through our counselling and 24/7 Support Line that are funded by generous Australians, yet only around one in five of those who contact us for counselling are men.
“We’d like to thank the Renegades for helping us raise awareness and funds through this exciting new partnership.”
Quotes from James Rosengarten, Melbourne Renegades General Manager
“We’re thrilled to partner with Red Nose and to assist them in the incredible work they do supporting Australian families in their time of need.”
“We hope to have a big crowd at our game against the Sydney Thunder on January 8 and through our Renegades family and the wider cricket community, we look forward to helping raise awareness and funds for Red Nose while enjoying a great night at the cricket.”
Quotes from Cameron Boyce, Melbourne Renegades player Red Nose Ambassador
“I’m proud to be an ambassador for this partnership between the Renegades and Red Nose.”
“Having a young family myself and friends with experiences of their own, it’s great to be able to team up with this amazing organisation supporting families across Australia.”
