Raising Funds and Awareness for Diabetes
Congratulations to Eloise Campbell (Year 5), Mia Krongold (Year 6) and Sarah Marriott (Year 7) for their fundraising efforts to raise money to help support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). JDRF is a leading not-for-profit supporter of Type 1 diabetes research, who provide support to the Type 1 diabetes community with information, resources and personal connection.
The three girls formed a team named ‘The Insulin Addicts’ to raise money for research into a cure for diabetes, and build awareness within our community. In their efforts, they prepared and presented an informative and inspiring presentation to all the Barbreck girls at the Junior School assembly and participated in the JDRF One Walk, on Sunday 19 November.
They raised close to $22,000 – the most money raised by any team across Australia.
An amazing effort and one they should feel incredibly proud of.
They are very grateful and thankful for the support of family, friends and the St Catherine’s community for helping them to achieve their goal and even more.
