Gold Coast shows what it means to be a top bloke

Top Blokes were out in full force at the GC Titans game earlier this month. We had the incredible opportunity to chat with fans about men’s mental health and officially launch Logan’s Legacy in memory of Titans’ player Kieran Forans’ stepson, Logan Steinwede, who sadly lost his battle with mental health last year. Legend surfer Mick Fanning joined Logan’s mum, Karina to carry the match ball in what was a moving and very special moment as Top Blokes participants walked behind spelling the name LOGAN.

Sparking conversation

Earlier that week Kieran sat down with Mick and Joel Parkinson in a very raw and open conversation about mental health and the journey each of them had been on. This inspiring conversation between the three men shows everyone the importance of reaching out, checking in and speaking up.

Get the crowd pumping

As the crowds arrived for the Saturday game, Top Blokes graduates and current participants were spreading the Top Blokes word, encouraging everyone to check in, reach out, and speak up. They chatted to the crowd and represented our community with the true Top Blokes spirit and values.

Kieran Foran shared:

“Logan’s Legacy has been built to help young males with mental health and is particularly close to my heart. My stepson Logan battled mental health up until he took his own life last year. Programs like this are designed to help young men so no one has to struggle alone.”

A massive thanks to Mick Fanning, Kieran and Karina Foran, the GC Titans and their partners and supporters for believing in our mission to challenge and nurture young males to be their best selves.

Over $40k was raised at the match and online to help kick start Logan’s Legacy and fund new initiatives to support men’s mental health.
