Tradie Tales – The Kids Cancer Project – Owen Finegan #61

Owen is the CEO of The Kids Cancer Project and starts by taking us through his story from Tradie to CEO, with Rugby being a highly influential part of that journey.

Rugby has been a big part of Owens life with a distinguished career as player and coach that saw him transition from amateur status to professional sportsperson. Owen earned 55 Caps for the Wallabies from 1996-2003, playing club Rugby with Randwick and is an ACT Brumbies legend.
