Seve awarded DonateLife Most Courageous Player award

Rewarded for his powerful performance in just his first game back from injury, Marion Seve was awarded the Donate Life Most Courageous Player award following Storm’s 46-16 win over the Parramatta Eels. 

Friday night’s game capped off what has been a strong week of partnership between Storm and DonateLife, with both the club and organisation coming together to raise awareness around the importance of organ donation.

 Returning from a fractured jaw on Friday night, Seve impressed on the right edge, coming up with a number of strong carries and scoring a try to earn himself the prestigious award from DonateLife CEO Lucinda Berry. 

Speaking after receiving the award post-match, Seve said he felt proud to receive the award.

 “It’s a pleasure to receive this award, was obviously good to get the win with the boys and to spread more awareness about DonateLife,” Seve said.

 “It’s really good and thank you again for the acknowledgement.”

DonateLife took the centre stage at Marvel, with the ball kids all repping Donate Life tees and Christian Welch leading the team out with the DonateLife Junior Mascots.

Several initiatives were also held throughout the week, with players and coaching staff all wearing DonateLife tees and beanies during training while organ donor recipient Aaron Habgood also came and shared his story with the squad.

 DonateLife CEO Berry said she was extremely impressed by Seve’s achievements on the field, especially given his latest injury setbacks and felt he was a more than worthy recipient of the award.

 “As we know Storm have been an amazing partner in getting the word out about organ donation and thanks for everything you’ve done to help us do that and congratulations again,” Berry said.

 It’s never too late to register as an organ donor and it only takes a minute.
