A fierce rivalry is set to continue when the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and the Parramatta Eels face off for the annual Bandaged Bear Cup at ANZ Stadium this Friday, July 22.
The Bandaged Bear Cup celebrates the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers of The Children's Hospital at Westmead, in a contest that has been fought once a season every year since 2007.
Part of the 25,000 plus crowd expected for the match will be many of the Hospital's 3000 staff and volunteers, accompanied by family and friends for a very public tribute thanks to tickets provided by ANZ Stadium and the Bulldogs Club.
A parade of honour at half time of the NRL match will include representatives of the Hospital's 150 departments. The Hospital's mascot Bandaged Bear will lead the parade.
