Dreams came true when our cherished little Bomber mascots crossed paths with their AFL superheroes at the iconic Marvel Stadium for the clash between Essendon and the Western Bulldogs.

For the seventh consecutive year, Challenge proudly joined forces with the Essendon Football Club for a cherished annual tradition. Twenty-two of our courageous members, brimming with excitement, ran hand-in-hand through the match-day banner alongside their adored players. Amidst the echoing cheers of the crowd, the stadium lit up with the radiance of children’s smiles and the palpable bond between the young hearts and their larger-than-life heroes.

In the lead-up to the game, our members were granted a sneak peek into the inner sanctum of Essendon’s headquarters. Witnessing the players in their element as they prepared for the impending showdown – an opportunity that no one took for granted!

These are moments etched in the memory banks of our families, forever cherished. 

Celebrating two decades of partnership with the Essendon Football Club, Challenge takes pride in this enduring alliance that continues to flourish. This remarkable relationship helps Challenge immensely in its mission to make a difference, an achievement made possible by the support of everyone within the club’s fold.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone at the Essendon Football Club. Your steadfast commitment continues to brighten the lives of our members, ensuring that their dreams shine brightly.
