Yesterday a handful of NRL and NRLW players took off with the Transformers Program to volunteer in Fiji until Friday, November 9th. Junior Tatola (Rabbitohs), Corban McGregor (Roosters), David Nofoaluma (Tigers), Jayson Bukuya (Sharks), Sammy Bremner (Dragons) and Victor Radley (Roosters) took off to the island in the lead up to the commencement of pre-season training in order to lend their help to the program.
The Transformers Program aims to use the power that athletes have been granted with in order to generate social impact and legacy. The players have been taken out of their comfort zones in Australia and placed in the local area of Narere in Suva, Fiji where they will volunteer in kindergarten classrooms. Outside of the classrooms they will lead sports clinics for the children as well as lending their physical attributes to the construction needs of the community.
"It will always be about human connection and an individual's impact is about what happens to the people they connect with. It's not determined or defined by status, but rather the difference they are able to generate."
