Passionate Crows supporter Enzo Cornejo and his own biggest supporters, his school friends, had a special visit to West Lakes this week to meet their favourite AFL players through the Adelaide Crows Foundation.
Football mad Enzo has the extremely rare condition Progeria – the disease of premature and rapid ageing – which occurs in an estimated 1 per 20 million people worldwide.
Enzo is the only known Australian with Progeria but, despite his medical challenges, he is a bright and energetic 11-year-old who loves school, playing with his friends and footy.
After hearing about Enzo and his love for the Crows in The Advertiser’s SA Weekend magazine, the family was invited for a behind-the-scenes experience at the Club through the Adelaide Crows Foundation’s Crows Care program, which sees players and staff deliver experiences to support children and youth in need.
Head of Football Adam Kelly provided a tour of the football facilities followed by an opportunity to watch AFL training and trade jokes with players.
