Family First: Deadly Choices Keep Titans Focused

Culturally embedded selflessness and commitment to family are accelerating Titans enforcer David Fifita’s physical and emotional recovery from off-season pectoral surgery.

The 24-year-old took time out today to assist in unveiling the Club’s new suite of Deadly Choices health check shirts, acknowledging the power of preventative health in ensuring his ability to optimise overall wellbeing.

“Knowing that my Mum, my Nan, and my Dad are alright; my family and my partner; it just keeps me relaxed knowing they’re OK,” confirmed Fifita.

“This, without doubt, is my Deadly Choice!

“Knowing my family’s OK, that gives me the best push to train and play the best that I can be.

“Preparation is key for everything, to be happy and get the results that I need!

“For community and families across the Gold Coast and Queensland, it’s important to look after your own wellbeing, so the easiest way is to book in for a health check and you’ll also score one of these deadly Titans shirts.”

Such an endorsement is well appreciated by the Gold Coast’s Kalwun Health Service which operates three community-controlled health service clinics out of Bilinga, Miami and Coomera, allowing access to culturally appropriate and holistic healthcare for community.

“There’s an absolute commitment by the Gold Coast Titans to local communities and that’s continually reflected in the subtle things that players and staff do on a day-to-day basis, not only in terms of health messaging and promotion to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, but also in their willingness to assist the more vulnerable in society more broadly,” confirmed Kalwun CEO Kieran Chilcott.

As a valued Kalwun Health and Deadly Choices stakeholder, the Gold Coast Titans take responsibility in assisting in core health service provision, particularly throughout its major footprint.

"Our partnership with Kalwun Health is of significant importance to our club. Helping to Close the Gap for our First Nations communities and ensuring the prosperity of Indigenous peoples through health and wellbeing is central to our Purpose. Kalwun Health Service does extraordinary work in this space, and we are thrilled to continue our work with them," said Titans CEO Steve Mitchell.

The decade-long partnership between Kalwun Health Service, Deadly Choices and the Gold Coast Titans has played a key role in driving demand for preventative health care, contributing to an incredible 4000% increase in 715 Health Checks across South-East Queensland and leading to the expansion of Deadly Choices right across Queensland.  

All Queensland NRL clubs are united behind the Deadly Choices preventative health initiative through valued funding by the Queensland Government through Health and Wellbeing Queensland.

Through the Deadly Choices Healthy Lifestyle Program, we’re making a real difference in closing the health and life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

The Deadly Choices and Titans partnership is proudly supported by Health and Wellbeing Queensland.
