The Chloe Clash
In 2012 the Myors family’s life was turned upside down. Ian and Kelly’s daughter Chloe went to school like any other day and collapsed just after the first bell.
Having suffered from a brain aneurysm, Chloe was airlifted to the RCH. Three days later, Ian, Kelly and Chloe’s little brother Ben said their final goodbyes to their beloved 11-year-old daughter and sister.
In 2017, Ben told dad Ian that he wanted to do something to raise money for the hospital and the idea for ‘The Chloe Clash’ was born.
“In the car on the way home, Ben said to me that he wanted to raise money for the hospital and honour Chloe”.
Within an hour Ben had come up with a unique concept. Now in its third year, the 24-hour non-stop marathon sports game is part netball, part basketball. Netball was the game Chloe excelled at and loved and basketball is Ben’s sport of choice. While it may sound confusing, rules are fairly simple and when the ball crosses the centre line, it becomes the other sport.
The Chloe Clash supports The Royal Children’s Hospital Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), raising money for the PICU bed sponsorship program.
