A BALLARAT Clarendon College student is donating all his earnings from coaching a grade one futsal team this year towards Relay For Life.
Henry Woodward began boarding at the school last year and has since put his hand up for many community activities.
After losing a close family friend to cancer over the summer holidays, he decided the school should start a Relay for Life team.
He has rallied 15 year 10 students to take part in this weekend’s event, having raised
$800 so far, almost reaching their goal of $1000.
Mr Woodward doesn’t regularly play futsal, but is involved with other sports, including rowing and football.
He said it was fairly straight-forward to start the team.
“I’ve got heaps of friends that play,” Mr Woodward said.
“They were just after a coach and I said I’d help.”
So far, he has donated $100 from the first few weeks of the year, but intends to donate his earnings from the entire year.
Other year 10 boarders, Liam McClelland and Sam Gorman, have got behind Henry to take part in Relay for Life.
Relay for Life is on March 1 and 2 at Llanberris Athletic Reserve. To get involved, call 1300 65 65 85 or visit relayforlife.org.au
