Melbourne Heart FC is proud to welcome back goalkeeper and reigning Player of the Year Clint Bolton as a Heart for Life champion for DonateLife Week 2013.

Bolton took time out from his training schedule to visit Children at Our Lady of the Way Primary School yesterday.

The former Socceroo led Melbourne Heart FC-s efforts to encourage all Australians to discuss organ and tissue donation, with DonateLife Week 2013 focusing on making your wish count.

“I-m proud to be involved in DonateLife Week 2013 because organ and tissue donation is an important modern day issue, and it is critical people are well informed before making a decision,” Bolton said.

“I urge our fans to make their wish count by speaking to their family members about organ and tissue donation, and inform them of their wishes.”

Heart-s partnership with the Organ and Tissue Authority culminated in the staging of a DonateLife Week match against Sydney FC at AAMI Park on Sunday February 24.

The Melbourne Heart DonateLife Week theme match is an initiative to help promote DonateLife Week.

DonateLife Week is the national awareness week, taking place from Sunday 24 February to Sunday 3 March 2013, to encourage all Australians to discuss organ and tissue donation.

The Melbourne Heart FC project is funded by the Organ and Tissue Authority under the Government-s national reform agenda to increase organ and tissue donation and transplantation rates.
