Santa Cruz Warriors Team Members Kiwi Gardner & Daniel Nwaelele Join Elite Crew of Hunger Fighter Athletes.
We are more than blessed to have had the support of the entire Santa Cruz Warriors organization from day one as Hunger Warriors. This season, Kiwi Gardner and Daniel Nwaelele have stepped forward to pledge their commitment to be a part of our Hunger Fighter crew.
Both players came by GOH HQ last month for a visit, to sign the wall, and to spend some time hanging out with the kids.
Kiwi wasted no time grabbing a ping pong paddle to play against fellow Hunger Fighter and big Kiwi fan, Kiera Brown. Meanwhile Daniel was rushed by a crowd of kids for autographs on their Santa Cruz Warriors superhero capes. They also presented Kiera with a very special gift: a Santa Cruz Warriors jersey signed by the entire team. Kiera is a huge fan of the team and it was just the good luck charm she needed as she was headed in to surgery the following day.
Both players now have their own Hunger Fighter pages where you can contribute to their fight against childhood hunger!
Stay tuned for more opportunities to interact with Kiwi and Daniel and the entire Santa Cruz Warriors team!
