Cricket Without Borders (CWOB) has recently entered into a community partnership with Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision (MRV).
In announcing details of the partnership the Chair of Cricket Without Borders Clare Cannon said she was delighted that CWOB had established a community partnership with MRV.
“Maddie was a courageous young woman who loved sport. Courage and inclusivity are two qualities we hold very high at CWOB.”
Clare added that “it was a tragedy that Stem Cell Failure is a disease of young people. The young women who are part of CWOB are lucky to be well enough to pursue their dreams in sport. The partnership with MRV allows our players to recognize this, and be grateful for their opportunities.”
CWOB is very keen to promote Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision creating awareness around, and finding a cure, for this disease and the players will wear their purple MRV shirt with pride.
The CEO of Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision Nicky Long in support of the partnership with CWOB said “we look forward to working together with CWOB. As Clare has indicated Maddie was passionate about women in sport and this partnership will bring greater awareness and support to both our organization”.
The Cricket Without Borders team will wear their purple MRV shirt for the first occasion in Samoa in July this year when they in an International Cricket Council (East Asia Pacific) tournament against teams from Samoa, Japan and Papua New Guinea.
