Ben Nethercote teaches his sports team to Be Wise with Be Wise WristbandsPublished
Ben Nethercote (the winner of our merch competition last month) decided to use his voucher to buy some Be Wise wristbands for the boys Basketball team that he coaches.
Ben told the Foundation:
“We spoke about the Foundation and Pat’s story and how it can link to our values that we set as a team earlier in the season.
One value that we stand by is “what’s next”. It means to not get caught up emotionally on a play that just happened e.g. committing a foul or turnover, and to think positively by immediately moving onto and thinking about the next play and how you’ll play your role for the team.
This value of ours related well to the Lead By Example page on the Pat Cronin Foundation’s website, with the first point being to keep a positive attitude by thinking, acting and talking in an optimistic way.
It’s great that our team shares a similar value to the Foundation which really makes wearing the wristbands more meaningful as we represent both the foundation and our team values, and what we’re all about.”
So great to see the Be Wise message spreading to young men in the local community.
