Murphy’s Misfits Charity Touch Rugby Tournament 2017 – The Outcome



Misfits and friends,

this year’s Charity Touch Rugby Tournament is already history! It won’t be too much, if we say we are getting used to setting records every time. For another year we can clearly see a very positive trend. More players, more fans, more sponsors and above all – more funds collected for the charity cause.


We are happy to announce that we raised 3190 lev for ParaKids organization! A record amount for a Misfits event!


The funds will be added directly to ParaKids budget for buying a new all terrain wheelchair, which will be used by people with disabilities when they go on tourism and hiking. Every kid deserves the freedom to travel and experience nature’s beauties. To play and have fun with its friends!

What else can we say? Many new people were introduced to the sport of rugby trough the event. There was a kids rugby session that put a lot of smiles on kids faces. We made our most successful Facebook event reaching thousands of people, promoting the club and sharing our cause. And in the spirit of rugby everybody had lots of fun – no sore losers or cocky winners.

Thanks to all players and participants! Big thanks to all the media that helped us spread the word! Huge thanks to all the sponsors that helped our cause! Humongous thanks to all the volunteers and the club’s committee that organized everything!
