Call to arms: Young Coffs Harbour soccer fanatics Jonah and Noah Bedford with the Tam Cahill-signed World Cup ball.

WITH the soccer World Cup now underway, here’s a chance to be part of the action with Aussie superstar Tim Cahill.

The Cancer Council has a signed World Cup ball to give away to someone on the Mid North Coast.

“I am very excited about this prize which is sitting under my desk as we speak,” said Fiona Foulkes at the Mid North Coast office.

“By registering for our Call To Arms event and raising at least $100, you will go in to the draw to win the Tim Cahill-signed ball.”

Call To Arms is one of the Cancer Council’s annual fundraising events that offers men’s sporting groups of all ages and codes the opportunity to help raise funds and awareness for cancer – a disease that affects one in two Australian men by age of 85.

The idea is that as sporting clubs have regular fixtures throughout winter, clubs nominate one match in July as a Call To Arms match.

For that specified game all players wear yellow tape around their arm to show support for men with cancer and remember those who have lost their lives to cancer.

Get off the bench and register your club now at www.calltoarms.com.au or call Fiona Foulkes on 6659 8402 and have a chance to win the signed soccer ball.
