One of Perth Glory’s biggest fans, 10 year-old Micheal McDonald, helped get his team off to a great start on Sunday when he flipped the coin in favour of Perth Glory in their win against Melbourne City.
Michael, who has spina bifida, attended the game as an ambassador for Therapy Focus alongside volunteers who collected donations from patrons. Therapy Focus also hosted a stall where soccer fans young and old had their faces painted with the Perth Glory colours for a gold coin donation.
All proceeds raised on the day will be donated to Therapy Focus’ GIVE Program, which provides equipment, activities and other valuable supports for WA people with disabilities and their families.
