Blue Bulls to support J9 Foundation at Allianz Park
The Blue Bulls will play with the J9 Foundation’s logo on their sleeve to help create awareness for Motor Neuron Disease (MND) in their Sanlam Challenge match-up against Saracens on Saturday at Allianz Park.
The foundation, named after former Bulls and Springbok legend, Joost van der Westhuizen, is doing great work to create awareness for Motor Neuron Disease.
Claire Kaye-Grobler, from the J9 Foundation: “Events like the upcoming game between Saracens and the Blue Bulls are absolutely crucial in the global fight against MND, this disease is an otherwise forgotten about disease with no cure and no cause, it therefore discriminates against no one and we thus need people to stand up now and push for researchers to find a cure or cause and this will only happen with awareness.”
Van der Westhuizen was a guest for Saracens’ previous Anglo-South African clash, when the legendry Springbok half-back attended the north Londoner’s game against Currie Cup Champions Western Province in November 2014.
