Herbalife Nutrition Independent Members and Corporate Staff visited Alberton Oval on Tuesday 26 March 2019 to engage with Herbalife Nutrition Foundation Casa Centre, Power Community Limited, and to support their Aboriginal AFL Academy in the first match for 2019.
Members and staff acted as water carriers during the Aboriginal AFL Academy match against Henley High School, keeping players hydrated and cheering on both teams from the sidelines. It was a closely fought match – and even the score line couldn’t split the teams, with the Aboriginal AFL Academy and Henley High School both finishing with 66 points. After the match, Herbalife Nutrition Members served CR7 Drive and Rebuild Strength to Aboriginal AFL Academy players. Herbalife Nutrition Independent Members and Corporate Staff thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to engage directly with children who benefit from the work of the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation.
Power Community Limited was created by the Port Adelaide Football Club to leverage the power of elite football. Their programs drive social and economic change in the community through education and employment outcomes. As a beneficiary of grants provided by the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, donated funds are used towards nutrition education for Aboriginal youth participating in the Aboriginal AFL Academy.
