As a part of the Sharks Ronaldo Mulitalo's fundraising drive for charity Stepping Stone House, Ivan Lampret from Gibson Partners Real Estate at Cronulla pledged $1000 and $100 for every try scored for the last six games of the Sharks 2020 season.

The Sharks crossed for 22 tries in the six games, with Ronaldo scoring six of those, with a total of $3,200 heading to Stepping Stone House, the community organisation helping to better the lives of homeless youth.

Having seen the struggles faced by homeless youth Mulitalo also launched a campaign labelled 'Give 5, Get 5' - the premise being to donate $5 and tag five friends to do the same.

The 20-year-old Cronulla winger is also the youngest nominee for this year's NRL's Ken Stephen Medal.

The Medal is awarded to a player who shows service to the game, on and off the field,and has been won by some of League's finest players including Cronulla's ET, Jason Stevens, David Peachey, Preston Campbell and Luke Douglas.

A Stepping Stone House ambassador, Mulitalo was thankful for Lampret's contribution to the cause and happy he was able to add to the donation total.

"Stepping Stone is a wonderful organisation doing great work and I'm very appreciative of Ivan's support," Mulitalo said. "And to get across the line myself a few times, adding a little bit extra to his donation made it even better."

Mulitalo also took out the Sharks Have Heart Community Award and Shaun Johnson won the inaugural Porter-Gallen Medal as the Sharks Pontifex Jewellers Player of the Year.
