From 2022, the Gold Coast SUNS Community Award will now be known as the Jarrod Harbrow Community Award.
The retiring SUNS Life Member had one final tribute bestowed upon him at the 2021 Gold Coast Club Champion when it was revealed the club’s Community Award would be renamed in his honour.
Harbrow was announced as the 2021 Community Award winner on the night, marking the fifth occasion the 33-year-old has earned recognition for his work in the community.
SUNS General Manager of Consumer and Community Jane McGough, said Harbrow was worthy of being imparted the honour after his tireless work in the community over the last decade.
"Harbs is a leader within our club that for the past 11 years has dedicated so much time outside of training and club commitments to grow, support and develop those around him,” McGough said.
“His selfless work across his career has impacted many and created change within our club and community.
“It’s impossible to quantify just what he’s achieved off the field, his impact on others and his list of achievements is long.
“Much of the work he does has been behind the scenes, and without fuss. He doesn’t see it as going above and beyond, it’s simply the role he plays.”
Harbrow’s passion lies in mentoring Indigenous youth to be the best they can be.
He has launched his own mentoring program with brother Marc, aiming to further support and educate Indigenous youth throughout Queensland in sport, school and general day to day life.
