My name is Shawn Gielen-Relph, I am a fourth year Medical Student, and League fanatic studying at the University of Otago campus in Wellington. Recently I trialed and was selected for the New Zealand University and Tertiary Rugby League side to play in the up coming Festival of World Cups in Leeds, England. This is an absolute dream come true, but the overall cost of this trip is $5000 dollars per player which we have to try to raise before the tournament begins at the start of July. As a fourth year student 5000 dollars seems like a distant dream, and it will take a huge amount of hard work and fundraising on top of study to raise it. But with the generosity of friends, family, and the wonderful people of pledge me, I hope to bring that dream, and the dream of representing my country one step closer. I am not asking for the full $5000 here today, instead I am trying raise $1000 to go towards the trip. Thank you so much for all the support, with each $250 mile stone we reach together I will upload a new pledge me photo- with my flat, with my club team, with my class, and when our team finally gets together for the trip I will upload one of all of us together. With your help I hope to do you all proud when we take on the world and bring New Zealand home a Rugby League World Cup this July.





Do you want to support even more? Are you a business owner looking to advertise? Then i have an opportunity for you. As part of fundraising we are making and distributing a University and Tertiary Rugby League magazine, which will be distributed world wide! This will include a personal profile page of each member of our team which will be surrounded by our sponsors. As well as this our principle sponsor may also be included on our playing tops for the tournament. All proceeds from purchasing a spot on the page will go towards the team members trip, and you can support as many of my team mates as you want to get the level of exposure you desire.
If this interests you and you want to find our more please email me at shawn.gielen1@gmail.com for more information.
Thanks again!
