Canterbury Bankstown White Ribbon Tug O’ War Cup

STRONG MEN are those who will stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women. In 2017, the 5th annual White Ribbon Tug O’ War Cup will take place, welcoming men from local businesses, organisations, community groups and residents across Canterbury Bankstown to submit their team of 5 STRONG MEN.

This year, the Canterbury Bankstown White Ribbon Tug O’ War Cup will be held on:

Over the past 4 years, this event has attracted more than 250 men from local businesses, community and government organisations to show their support to ending violence against women, through participation in a friendly Tug O’ War competition.

In 2016, 27 teams of 5 men from the local Canterbury Bankstown community, Government organisations, as well as schools and local businesses registered to show their support. More than 200 participants and spectators also came along on the day.
