High profile sports agent, Ricky Nixon is the voice behind Kicking for Cancer, a relatively new organisation that aims to raise funds to grant wishes to kids with cancer.

To that end, Ricky came up with the idea of a football game featuring cancer victims who had recovered and were an inspiration to society along with a host of ex-AFL stars.

Helping to focus attention on the game, ten year old, Charlotte Morrow from Rosebud who is now recovering from stage-four brain cancer came along to the Rumbalara football ground with her family to join in the promotion.

The game will be between a country team and a city team on Saturday, March 14 at the Rumbalara Football Netball Club in Shepparton.

Following the game, an AFL Legends Dinner at the Terminus Hotel will be held with former stars Sam Newman, Des Tuddenham, Peter Bedford, Warwick Capper and others in attendance.
