3rd Annual KM Classic Charity Cricket Game

Come along this Sunday and help Wakehurst Redback Support an amazing cause. The past 2 games have been a blast with some amazing performances…..and some not so amazing performances.

Please get as many people to come along as you can.


The KM Classic Charity Cricket Game is an event that is currently in its 3rd year and is played in memory of Kian Mantle and aims to raise money for brain cancer research.

Kian tragically passed away from brain cancer at the age of 20 after a hard fought battle with the disease. To date the KM Classic Charity Cricket Game has raised $23,000 for the Brain Cancer Group in North Sydney who have been able to use that money to buy state of the art lab equipment to further study and understand brain cancer and investigate possible ways to treat it.

The charity game is being played on the Sunday, 23rd of February at 1.30pm
The amazing Manly Oval, Many Sydney is the venue.

If you would like to donate, please follow the link:


And for more information on the event, please check out their facebook page.


Lets all get together to support and amazing cause again.
