MACDONALD JONES STADIUM FILLED WITH YOGIS FOR MARK HUGHES FOUNDATION

It’s not the usual kind of crowd that fills McDonald Jones Stadium.

Today the deafening roar of footy fans was replaced by the silent meditations of a few hundred yogis.

The event was a fundraiser for the Mark Hughes Foundation, before 38 people board a plane for Borneo on Wednesday.

That group – which includes Knights players – will make a two-week trek across the country, also raising money for brain cancer research.
