Join AFLW Star Tayla Harris at the Give Geelong Breakfast

It’s that time for the Give Geelong Breakfast once again – the time of year when Geelong comes together to have a delicious breakfast at an iconic venue, listen to the empowering words of an incredible speaker and raise much-needed funds for the local community.  

This year, that incredible speaker is Tayla Harris. Boxing and AFLW star, Tayla Harris is a force to be reckoned with on the footy field and in the ring.  

Bill Mithen, CEO, Give Where You Live Foundation said this year the Foundation is thrilled to welcome ALFW and boxing star Tayla Harris who will share her rise to sporting excellence. 

“Well known as a dual-sport professional athlete, competing in both boxing and AFLW, Tayla Harris has many other, just as important, dimensions to her story.” 

“After an amazing AFL kick photo led to online trolling, Tayla uses her platform and voice in off-field advocacy for preventing violence against women and gender-based online abuse and is an inspiring role model for future generations,” Mr Mithen said. 

A staple in the Give Where You Live Foundation’s fundraising efforts, the Give Geelong Breakfast will take place on Thursday 19 May at GMHBA Stadium from 7:00 am until 9:00 am. 

Sponsored once again by BBC Digital, the Give Geelong Breakfast raises much-needed funds for our region and helps the Foundation in working toward its mission of creating a fairer community in which every person and place thrives.  

“The Give Geelong Breakfast is one of the biggest fundraisers for the Foundation,” says Mithen.  

“Last year the funds we raised contributed to the Foundation being able to put out $1.6 million in grants to local organisations to provide food, shelter, mental health support, education opportunities, employment opportunities and more. The funds raised at the breakfast this year will help us in creating a fairer community for every person and place in our region.”
