ahm Health Insurance Brand Ambassador and one of the country’s most loved and respected Australians, Steve Waugh AO, has once again helped Wollongong celebrate Australia Day on January 26.
As ahm’s special guest, Steve signed autographs and enjoyed a number of fun activities with locals such as volleyball, sack races and tug-o-war at the ahm Active Zone in Lang Park.
Steve also put his arm to the test in the Thong Throwing Competition at Belmore Basin before returning to the ahm Active Zone to join the Wollongong ahm Hawks and hand out prizes in a special Hoop Shooting Competition.
Finally, Steve made a guest appearance on the Children’s stage in Osbourne Park where he was interviewed by Dougy the Daggy Swaggy.
ahm Health Insurance Executive Group Manager, Dean Tillotson said "As a former Australian of the Year and one of our most capped cricket captains, Steve is an iconic Australian. It’s wonderful to have him here on behalf of ahm to help our city celebrate again."
"I know how much he enjoyed himself when he was last here in 2008 to celebrate Australia Day."
ahm also had the Wollongong ahm Hawks and their mascots Tomma and Moe Hawk visit the ahm Active Zone where the players and coach signed autographs, gave a basketball demonstration and ran the hoop shooting competition.
