Oddballs double their donation to support RL Cares

Rugby League Cares is pleased to announce that The Oddballs Foundation has made a second donation of £15,000 to help fund our men’s health and wellbeing projects.

Oddballs will continue to work alongside RL Cares on a range of awareness-raising initiatives over the next 12 months, including Movember and Offload, the men’s mental fitness project run in partnership with State of Mind and the club foundations at Salford Red Devils, Warrington Wolves and Widnes Vikings.

Our distinctive Rugby League Cares and Oddballs-branded vehicle will also continue to be seen at matches and other major Rugby League events in 2018.

RL Cares Health Programme Manager Emma Goldsmith said: “It’s fantastic to have Oddballs on board for another 12 months, they’ve been a fantastically pro-active partner and we’re looking forward to working with them throughout 2018 and beyond.

“The Oddballs brand is instantly recognisable among sports fans and their continued involvement in Rugby League will help us build on the growing success of our health programme.’

Oddballs was set up in 2014 as an underwear company to raise money for, and awareness of, testicular cancer. Since then Oddballs has established a national profile through its sporting connections and has enjoyed strong visibility at the Super League Magic Weekends held at St James’ Park, Newcastle, in 2016 and 2017.

Oddballs Managing Director Will Cooper said: “Partnering with Rugby League Cares allows us to give something back to the Rugby League community that have been great supporters of what we do.

“Fans, players and coaches have got behind our campaign for the last three years and this second donation is our way of saying ‘Thank you’ and funding something we really believe is important.

“Testicular cancer and the awareness of it is a key part of the Offload project and a key message that we want to get across.”
