This Saturday June 18 is the James Macready-Bryan Cup, a charity football game between Carey Grammar and Caulfield Grammar to raise money for the JMB Foundation. The JMB Foundation raises much needed funds for the rehabilitation and care of young people, like James, with acquired brain injuries.
My Step-Brother James incurred life changing injuries to his brain as a result of an assault in October 2006, where he fell, unconscious, hitting his head on the pavement.
Unfortunately, the social security system which provides comprehensive funding for those injured in the work place (through Work Safe Victoria) and in transport accidents (through the TAC- transit accident commission) falls miserably short in its funding of the care of those with acquired brain injuries. No one chooses to get injured, or by which means they are injured.
So come down to Carey Sports Complex on Bulleen Road, Bulleen at 11am, say hi and help us support a very worthy cause. Hoping for blue skies!
