The 2023 MUWFC Fun Run was a great success that saw around 40 participants and our wonderful volunteers gather at Princes Park to raise funds for the Mugars Family Fund - a fund that allows future generations of footballers to have access to our club, regardless of financial situation.
Mugars past and present completed a 3km or 5km loop of Princes Park with their coffees, strollers and pooches by their side, and were greeted with cheers and a breakfast barbeque at the finish line.
Thanks to generous support of our community, the event raised $230 via the Australian Sports Foundation with an additional $1,116.05 in community donations, bringing our total raised so far this year to $1,346.05.
These funds raised will directly cover the costs of player uniform and fees for a given season, and is accessible for any MUWFC Player who would not be able to play without financial assistance. In 2021, 8 players were supported through the fund and in 2022, 6 players were supported.
The donation portal for the Mugars Family Fund is open year round, we appreciate donations of all sizes so please consider donating if you can (it's tax deductible).
Thank you to all who sponsored, ran, walked, volunteered or cheered along virtually on our socials - you all contributed to the success that this event was. We can’t wait to see you all at our next event or at the footy throughout 2023!
