The players and backroom staff at Cardiff Blues support the #StayStrongForOws campaign
Cardiff Blues are urging supporters across the rugby world unite together and #StayStrongForOws - after today launching a fundraising and awareness campaign for injured player Owen Williams.
Wales international Owen Williams suffered a significant injury to his cervical vertebrae and spinal cord while playing for Cardiff Blues last month in the World Club 10s in Singapore.
Owen is currently at the Welsh Spinal Injuries and Neurological Rehabilitation Unit at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff as he continues his long-term rehabilitation and recovery.
Thousands of messages of support and offers of help from around the world have poured in to Cardiff Blues and have been a huge source of inspiration for Owen, his family and friends at this time.
Now the region is pleased to announce it is launching the #StayStrongForOws campaign throughout this season and beyond - and is encouraging all rugby fans to stand together as one and show their support for Owen!
Cardiff Blues has joined forces with the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust to ensure we can raise valuable funds to help and support Owen in the long-term as he continues his recovery from such a serious injury.
Fans who wish to show their support for Owen can now do so by purchasing specially created #StayStrongForOws wristbands from Cardiff Blues.
The wristbands carry the #StayStrongForOws motto and have been created in gold and navy blue to represent Cardiff Blues and Owen's home town club Aberdare RFC.
Wristbands are available NOW for just £1.50 from the Cardiff Blues Store.
