Wests Tigers and the Parramatta Eels will play for more than just two competition points when they meet this Sunday at ANZ Stadium for their Round 20 clash.
Playing for the inaugural Stay Kind Cup, the two teams will wear special jerseys with the Stay Kind branding for the match, with the day developed in combination with the NRL and the Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation to raise awareness of youth suicide.
The initiative was launched by the Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation in memory of Staurt Kelly — remembered for his kindness and support towards his brother Thomas.
Stay Kind is all about kindness and respect towards all people, and so this week, we’re taking a look at the top five ways you can get involved with Stay Kind Day on Sunday.
As always, the Top Five at Five is proudly brought to you by ShareCare.
