Wheatbelt Football Clubs Join Forces to Promote the 'Belt Up' Restraint Use Message

Football Leagues in the regions recently held their annual ‘Belt Up’ promotion round, with 2018 marking the 20th anniversary of the 'Belt Up’ partnership.

The round had special significance for 12,500 country football players, most of whom have been impacted by road trauma in some way through the loss of loved ones.

During the round, players took a minute silence to not only remember the importance of safe driving on country roads, but to also remember those who have either been injured or lost their lives on our roads.

All league footballs and player uniforms carried the 'Belt Up' logo for the round.

In one of the games, Hyden Karlgarin Football Club hosted the Corrigin Football Club and both teams acknowledged the impact road crashes have had on their respective communities.
