Harry Higgins sets up Old Blue Calendar
My name is Harrison Gordon Higgins. Born and raised in Brisbane Queensland Australia, I have been in love with rugby since I was 4 years old. I currently play for one of the most prestigious clubs in North America, the New York OLD BLUE Rugby Football Club.
My sister is one of my greatest role models in my life. She is currently trying to recover from a devastating horse riding accident in 2010 that left her paralyzed. Even though she is on the mend, she is determined to qualify for the 2016 Olympic games in Rio. Her strength and determination inspired me to help those suffering from spinal cord injuries and reduced mobility. Whether it be athletes like my sister, injured in their sports or soldiers injured in the war, I want to help them and their families and let them know they are not alone, and that there is hope. I love making people smile or laugh and my goal in life is to be the change I want to see in the world. I love rugby, I love my club, and I'm just thankful for the opportunity to give back to those that need it.

Fashion photographer Jade Young in conjunction with ‘Old Blue’ RFC player Harry Higgins present to you “Kits Off”. “Kits Off” is a non-profit calendar raising awareness for individuals living with paralysis and spinal cord injury. In 2010 Harry’s sister suffered a severe spinal cord injury during the Australian horse riding national championship. Watching his sister overcome her injuries has not only inspired Harry but motivates him to bring awareness to a cause that hits very close to home. Harry and his teammates feel so passionate about this cause that they have taken their rugby “Kits” off and in turn posed nude for this very special calendar. Proceeds from the calendar will go to “The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation” as well as the “Wounded Go to www.kitsoff.com to learn more, get your calendar, and support these great causes!
