Telethon event an ice idea


Melville Times - - Looklocal -

ICE hockey play­ers will crash, bash and slide their way across Cock­burn Ice Arena later this month, all in the name of Telethon.

The Hock­eython Char­ity Week­end for Telethon will bring ju­nior, se­nior, premier league and all-abil­ity teams to­gether for a week­end of back-to-back games as the lo­cal ice hockey com­mu­nity ral­lies be­hind Perth’s sick chil­dren.

Event co-or­di­na­tor Chris McRae said it was a way for play­ers of all ages, lev­els and abil­i­ties to play hockey in a fun, com­pet­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment while rais­ing money for a good cause.

“The re­cep­tion from the hockey com­mu­nity was ex­tremely pos­i­tive and we had a huge num­ber of ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from play­ers and par­ents from all di­vi­sions,” he said.

“Telethon has al­ways been a key char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion through­out WA and the cause they work to­wards is very much worth sup­port­ing.

“The fact that we have so many young par­tic­i­pants makes it even more worth­while as they are help­ing to make a dif­fer­ence for youth and chil­dren in WA.”

All pro­ceeds from the event will be do­nated di­rectly to Telethon.

The Hock­eython Char­ity Week­end for Telethon is on Oc­to­ber 28 and 29 at the Cock­burn Ice Arena.
