Broncos Climb High For A Good Cause

Players from the Brisbane Broncos recently braved the heights as they climbed Brisbane’s iconic Story Bridge in an effort to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland (RMHSEQ).

Alex Glenn, Sam Thaiday, Matt Gillett, Josh McGuire, and Gehamat Shibasaki, were joined by fifteen lucky punters who bid for their position to climb the bridge with the Broncos stars. By braving not only the heights but Brisbane’s extreme heat and humidity on the day, participants were able to help raise over $3,000 for the charity.   

Ronald McDonald Houses are attached to major women’s and children’s hospitals across Australia, providing a home away from home for seriously ill children and their families. RMHSEQ have six houses across the region, and the money raised from the Broncos bridge climb will go towards developing the South Brisbane facility, which is located near Lady Cilento’s Children’s Hospital. The facility already houses 70 rooms across 13 levels, and with additional funding, there is the capacity to expand to a total of 112 rooms.   

While climbing atop of the Brisbane landmark, Sam Thaiday was also happy to celebrate the Broncos Burger returning for another year at McDonald’s. With 50c from every Broncos Burger sold going to RMHSEQ, Sam encourages fans to support the charity through the tasty initiative. “It’s helping your belly, and it’s also supporting something that is absolutely amazing”.  

As another reminder to fans, if the Broncos score 19+ points or more at any home game this season, win or lose, all members and match ticket holders can get a free Broncos Burger the next day in participating McDonald’s restaurants around Brisbane. Another great incentive for fans which is also helping RMHSEQ provide more homes for those in need.
