Greater Western Sydney GIANT Jonathan Giles has joined a number of AFL players taking part in this year’s febfast campaign.
AFL Players' Association charity, Ladder, has linked with febfast to raise money for its usual work with vulnerable young people and to create a new program aimed at helping those most at risk of developing drug and alcohol problems.
Among those taking part are Fremantle captain Matthew Pavlich, Carlton's Marc Murphy, Hawthorn skipper Luke Hodge and Collingwood midfielder Luke Ball.
Giles said that he was looking forward to taking on the febfast challenge and raising funds for Ladder.
“This is a great cause and raises money and awareness about drug and alcohol issues that impact a lot of people in our society,” Giles said.
“I’m proud to be getting behind it and hope that we can raise as much as possible for Ladder throughout February.”
The febfast challenge encourages people to take a break from alcohol for the month of February and in 2013 aims to raise more than $1 million for vulnerable young Australians tackling serious alcohol and drug problems.
Launched in 2007, it has raised more than $4.5 million to support 40 programs throughout Australia and inspired 700,000 drink-free days.
