Maddie Riewoldt was only 26 years old when she tragically passed away from Aplastic Anaemia - a Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome.

Over the five years that she battled with Aplastic Anaemia, Maddie had a vision of establishing an organisation to raise money for treatments, prevention and a cure for Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes in young people.

In June of this year, her vision came true and Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision (MRV) was established.

Maddie’s Match will be the Vision’s first major fundraiser. The St. Kilda v Richmond match will be held as a tribute to Maddie this Sunday at 4:40pm at Etihad Stadium.

St. Kilda captain and Maddie’s brother, Nick; along with Maddie’s cousin, and Richmond forward, Jack, are urging all football fans to get behind the match. The foundation will receive $5 from every ticket sold.

In support of Maddie's Match and MRV, Henley joined with two other sponsors in donating $1,500 for every goal kicked during the match. In an outstanding effort, the teams kicked a total of 23 goals, raising a whopping $34,500 for Maddie's Match, of which Henley donated $11,500.

St. Kilda captain and Maddie’s brother, Nick; Maddie’s cousin, and Richmond forward, Jack, and the Riewoldt family extended their gratitude to the sponsors and fans for helping make the match a success.

Henley is proud to help make the first major event for MRV such a huge success.
