Participants enjoyed a delicious dinner in the Dining Room at Cricket Victoria, based in the CitiPower Centre at Junction Oval. This year’s event was hosted by leading sports broadcaster, presenter and producer Tiffany Cherry. The great Archie Thompson, AFL players Dan Hannebery, Marcus Bontempelli and Mason Cox and many more sporting greats talked about what makes them tick, their triumphs and their tribulations.

Our Kick Start Program

Sacred Heart Mission’s Kick Start Program offers individualised support to people, to help them participate in sport and recreation, addressing their physical and mental health and their drug and alcohol use. Kick Start supports them to be independent and build positive experiences of the community, from learning about healthy diets to playing tennis, cricket and football, swimming and joining a gym. All activities are free and transport is provided. Some of the activities offered include: football, cricket, swimming, tennis, yoga, bowling, fishing, walking groups, movie afternoons and mystery day trips.

Dine with the Champions is supported by a committee of passionate sporting enthusiasts, known as Mission Possible.
