Support #TeamShez in this weekend’s Confident Girls Round!

Confident Girls Foundation Ambassador and Sunshine Coast Lightning midcourter Laura Scherian is helping raise funds for a cause close to her heart.

#TeamShez will go head to head with other CGF Ambassadors Courtney Bruce (West Coast Fever), Caitlin Thwaites (Melbourne Vixens) and Sam Poolman (Giants Netball) in this weekend’s fundraising initiative.

The highlight of Confident Girls Round is a Telethon on Saturday night from 6pm – 7pm, where supporters will have the opportunity to call in to chat to Scherian and Lightning teammates Karla Pretorius and Maddy McAuliffe.

The Telethon will be hosted by Sharni Layton and Sharelle McMahon and will be streamed on Suncorp Super Netball Facebook page live.

The Confident Girls Foundation runs a number of programs across the year, with the aim to help vulnerable girls and women and their communities overcome gender, social, economic and cultural barriers.

In 2020 the Foundation has also offered grants for netball clubs and communities impacted by bushfires and other natural disasters.

While Lightning’s CGF program has been impacted by COVID-19 this season, the Club held netball clinics, leadership sessions and community visits before restrictions set in.

This weekend’s Confident Girls Round coincides with the International Day of Charity, making it the perfect time to highlight the incredible work the Foundation does year-long.
