What a blast we all had at the annual Macquarie Footy Cup (Aussie Rules Football) in Toronto with 300+ middle-school students from across the city hosted by sports group The AussieX (www.theAussieX.com) on Thursday June 6th.
Big thanks to every god and deity known to man for ensuring the unseasonal heavy rain held off until all the newspaper & tv news crews had left the event! Congrats to organizers Kaela Bree and Emile Studham who were interviewed and helped promote Australian sports (footy, cricket & netball) to the kids as well as media. CP24 Breakfast Show started the day with us at 6am and Kaela and Emile were invited into the CBC radio studios that evening for a live interview on the rise of popularity for Aussie Rules.
