NRL club raises $22,000 for important cause

Thanks to the support of the Storm family, Christian Welch and the Melbourne Storm squad have raised $22,000 and counting for kids facing cancer.

Welch, a long-time Camp Quality ambassador, led 21 Melbourne Storm players and five staff, including head coach Craig Bellamy, as they said goodbye to their head of hair to fundraise for the charity.

The donations go towards giving kids with cancer the chance to be kids again. Their services and programs help children aged 0-15 years deal with their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.

Players that didn’t shave weren’t left out, contributing donations to the incredible cause.

An amazing gesture from one the NRL’s top clubs and yet another example of why rugby league is the greatest game of all: the community around it that does great things and is nothing short of a family.

Welch has also been doing his bit to help his fellow players speaking out recently about the CBA negotiations and the lack of clarity over the salary cap after the NRL confirmed its increase without talking to the RLPA (the players association of which Welch is a board member).
