Purple Power 2018

Once again, the formidable Melbourne Boomers join forces with Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision to present a family match day with proceeds going to fund further quality research into Bone Marrow biology.

There is a wonderful story behind the power of this purple partnership.

“Maddie was an avid player of sport. She played and was a big fan of soccer, AFL and basketball,” said Joe and Fiona, adding “She was frustrated by the lack of pathways for talented sports women, so we couldn’t be happier with our involvement with the Melbourne Boomers.”

“It’s fitting Melbourne’s WNBL club’s colours include purple, Maddie’s favourite colour, and we are connected to their drive to increase the profile of women’s elite sporting talent.”

Joe and Fiona have become passionate fans of the Boomers and in particular, both are looking forward to the teams home game against Townsville on Sunday, November 18th when all supporters will be asked to get their purple on to help celebrate Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision.

Speaking about the pride that the Boomers have in partnering with Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision, Boomers Assistant General Manager Lauren Jackson knows the MRV game on November 18th will be a huge day for the club.

“Our fans are the best supporters in the league, it will be a sea of purple for Maddie and the game will be televised live on Fox Sports,” said Jackson.

“Joe and Fiona came to some games last season and really enjoyed the atmosphere and family values the Boomers display, so everyone at the club is really excited to have them join us as official ambassadors for the coming season.”

This Sunday, November 18th, the Boomers will again be encouraging everyone to dress in purple in support of Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision and all suffering Bone Marrow Failure.

Tip off is at 1pm at the State Basketball Centre in a Grand final rematch against Townsville Fire.
