The JR Lugg Foundation has been set up to achieve three significant goals.The first is to perpetuate the memory of Jonathan, who was only 23 when he died. Despite his suicide, it must be said of Jonathan that he put great energy into his endeavours and with terrific people skills, he really enjoyed life enormously.
Secondly, the foundation seeks to develop and deliver an education program for coaches and others associated with sports teams, to better observe and understand signs of depression in members of their teams.The final goal relates to the provision of financial support, in the form of a scholarship, to a nominated hockey player from either the Hawthorn (Mens) Hockey Club or the Old Xavs Hockey Club.
Every year the Hawthorn Hockey club and Old Xaverian’s Hockey club come together before the season starts to play a match in memory of Jonathan Lugg. This year’s match will be on Sunday February 20, 2016.
This year, the first game of the day will be the OXHC Vic League 1 Women v the HHC Premier League Squad women – this will be at 12.30 pm on H-1.
The Mens game will follow at 2 pm
BBQ on all afternoon. All funds raised will be donated to The Black Dog Institute.
The Hawthorn Hockey Club, the Old Xaverian Hockey Club and the Lugg Family invite you to donate to the Jonathan Lugg Memorial Trust. Hockey was an important factor in Jono’s life. Following his tragic death, the Clubs sought to establish a Memorial Fund dedicated to his memory.
