Holiday fun for hero Hunter


Hunter Madden, as you may recall, is the brave little boy who inspired the club’s involvement in the World’s Greatest Shave back in March.

Now five, he  was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at the age of three and has shown incredible courage in battling it ever since.

And it was this courage that inspired Andy Keogh and Shane Lowry, along with several other members of the Glory staff, to join Team Hero Hunter and shave their heads in a bid to raise awareness and money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

So, nearly two months on since the shave, we thought it was high time to check in with Hunter and his family to find out what’s been happening.

His mother, Kate, takes up the story:

“We are all good. We went away for our first family holiday down south a couple of weeks ago and Hunter had a ball. He filled his days fishing for herring off the boat, making friends at the park and playing on the sand down at Gracetown.

“Hunter had chemo on Wednesday [of last week], so he’s been a bit off for a couple of days, but he’s now back up and running.

“Team Hero Hunter has managed to raise over $15,500 for the Leukaemia Foundation so far this year, an amount that we’re ecstatic about. We’d like to say a huge thank to everyone who took part and donated.”
