Storm to make every try count for Starlight kids

Melbourne Storm will make every try count when they take on the Sydney Roosters in support of kids being helped by the Starlight Children’s Foundation. 

For the eighth consecutive year Melbourne Storm will support the Starlight Children’s Foundation to raise much-needed funds to brighten the lives of kids and their families.  
Storm is calling on all fans to make every try count in their AAMI Park clash on July 20 by buying a virtual try, worth $4. Regardless of how many tries are scored, donations will be directed to help the Starlight Children’s Foundation deliver critical care to those who need it most.  
Fans can buy their virtual try here.
Storm’s game day will become a ‘Starlight under the stars’ with a range of activations and activities for fans to enjoy.  
Volunteers will be roaming the AAMI Park precinct with donation tins and will also have the always popular Starlight wands to purchase.  

The wands will play a special role pre-game as the stadium lights are turned off and the Starlight wands create ‘Starlight Under the Stars”, powered by the Solar Battery Group. 
At halftime, Storm talent will be on show as they compete in a goal kicking competition ‘Convert for the Kids’ thanks to Citipower in which for each successful conversion attempt, Citipower will donate $2000 to the Starlight cause.

For those wanting a personalised message from their favourite Storm star, SWYSH, a proud partner of Starlight, is generously donating 10% of all sales to Starlight Children’s Foundation ​ for the month of July.  

Storm members and fans also have the option of adding a Starlight donation when they purchase a game ticket. 
Storm’s fundraising effort has already kicked off with the generous support of the Solar Battery Group, SWYSH, Citipower and Grill’d, with the donation tally already sitting at $50,000. 
Starlight patients and their families will also participate in a range of experiences including Guard of Honour​, Coin Toss, Ball Delivery, Sideline Experience, as well as running out with the team as Junior Mascots. 
Last week Storm players Josh King, Xavier Coates, Will Warbrick, Marion Seve, Jonah Pezet and Young Tonumaipea visited the Starlight Express Room at The Royal Children’s Hospital to see Starlight Foundation’s impact on children. 

It is so special for us at Melbourne Storm to once again partner with the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Josh King Storm Forward

 “It is so special for us at Melbourne Storm to once again partner with the Starlight Children’s Foundation,” said Storm forward Josh King.

“To have the opportunity to bring joy and laughter to the kids is something we do not take for granted.  
“We hope they know how brave and inspiring they are to our playing group.” 
“It makes us realise how lucky we are and puts life into perspective. There are more important things than just footy.”
