The National Year of Reading will be the focus of Rugby League’s 2012 Community Carnival which started yesterday in Cairns and Coffs Harbours and will see 400 players visit more than 100 towns across Australia and New Zealand throughout the next month.
From Caloundra to Currabubula, Perth to Hobart, to Cootamundra, Gilgandra and beyond, the 2012 Community Carnival will see some clubs travelling over 3000km to spend time with fans and supporters, while promoting the importance of a healthy lifestyle and literacy from today, January 29, to February 22.
All 16 NRL Clubs will be involved, travelling to regional and remote communities, as well as their own club catchment areas.
The premiership-winning Sea Eagles, who have been named NSW Reading Ambassadors for the 2012 National Year of Reading, will kickstart the 2012 Community carnival in Cairns; while the Rabbitohs will visit Coffs Harbour.
