The Christchurch FC Heroes Rugby Team, an LGBTI inclusive team, have experienced an unprecedented amount of support from

return,” Rawa Karetai, Co-Manager of the rugby team, said.
“With our upcoming fundraiser, "Show Us Your Hero" - a drag show, strip* show, and dance party, we have proudly tagged
$5.00 per ticket of the $25.00 event will go towards a community organisation as part of our team's commitment to
supporting others in need in our community,” Andrew Rusbatch, Co-Manager said.
“With that in mind, we are inviting input from the public and our supporters, to help us choose a charity or cause where
our donation can help change lives and deliver positive outcomes for people in need,” Karetai said.
“We are local Heroes looking to support a local charity, organisation or cause that is local to the Canterbury region,
which deserves the recognition and support from the Christchurch FC Heroes Rugby Team,” Karetai Continued.
“As we develop a list of charities and causes, we will collate these into a survey where our community and supporters
can vote on their favourite,” Rusbatch said.
“We will announce the winning charity and see if they are in a position that they can accept our support, and go from
there! We look forward to peoples ideas, their support and we look forward to our Heroes supporting Heroes,” Rusbatch
Heroes is an LGBTI and LGBTI friendly inclusive team. Our mission is to enable players to come together to participate
and enjoy rugby in an open and supportive environment. We have formed over the last few months and now include members
from many walks of life.
Heroes have given both LGBTI and LGBTI friendly members of the community the opportunity to engage in areas of the
Christchurch community that do not traditionally attract people who identify as such.
