Cathy Freeman to launch Community Carnival

Australia's biggest name in Olympic sport, Catherine Freeman OAM, has joined forces with the NRL to launch the 2015 Community Carnival.

Freeman will join Rugby League legends, including NRL Community ambassadors Anthony Minichiello and Nathan Merritt, at Soldiers' Settlement Public School in Matraville tomorrow morning to introduce 'wellbeing' as the theme of this year's Carnival.

Now in its 15th year, Community Carnival will see NRL Ambassadors and players from all 16 Clubs visit a staggering 250,000 primary school students in local and regional communities throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Over the four weeks (February 2 through to February 27) of intensive activity, players will travel as far as Alice Springs in the Northern Territory and Perth in Western Australia, to the remote town of Tingha in New South Wales and Rotorua in New Zealand.
