Melbourne Ice Turns on Warm Welcome for Kidney Kids

The ice might have been cold and slippery, but Melbourne Ice laid on a warm welcome for the kidney community at O’Brien Group Arena in Melbourne’s Docklands last Sunday, 6 August.

More than 100 membes of the community attended the event and for many it was their first time at an ice hockey match.

It was a double-header weekend for Melbourne Ice as they lined up against reigning Goodall Cup champions Newcastle North Stars. On the Saturday, Melbourne Ice came back from a 2-1 deficit to win 7-4 win.

They turned it on again for their special guests, the Kidney Kids, on the Sunday, with a winning margin of 4 to 1.

Kidney Health Australia has been in a partnership with Melbourne Ice for the past three months and Sunday’s event was a chance to celebrate our new relationship.
