Vi­tal funds sup­port re­gional sick kids

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WOODGATE Beach First Na­tional Real Es­tate prin­ci­pal Michelle Cock­ing has an­nounced her es­tate agency is sup­port­ing the 2015 Ride for Sick Kids fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive through its over­all com­mu­nity spon­sor­ship pro­gram and sup­port of First Na­tional Foundation.

“First Na­tional Real Es­tate’s Foundation has con­trib­uted $80,000 in fund­ing to the Ride for Sick Kids across four states; Vic­to­ria, New South Wales, South Aus­tralia and Western Aus­tralia. Our mem­bers are look­ing for­ward to par­tic­i­pat­ing in th­ese rides be­tween Au­gust and Novem­ber so we can help keep fam­i­lies to­gether when their chil­dren most need sup­port,” Ms Cock­ing said.

Ron­ald McDon­ald House pro­vides ac­com­mo­da­tion and sup­port ser­vices to se­ri­ously ill chil­dren and their fam­i­lies across Aus­tralia. This lifts the bur­den of ac­com­mo­da­tion costs from fam­i­lies at a time when they most need to pro­vide their chil­dren with love and sup­port.

“When chil­dren are se­ri­ously ill and need cap­i­tal city base med­i­cal care, many re­gional fam­i­lies strug­gle with the avail­abil­ity of ac­com­mo­da­tion and its costs. By con­tribut­ing fund­ing to the Ride for Sick Kids and help­ing raise the pro­file of the ex­cel­lent work done by Ron­ald McDon­ald House, we’re help­ing as­sure that this vi­tal ac­com­mo­da­tion is sus­tained,” Ms Cock­ing said.

Full de­tails of the ride in the states that First Na­tional Real Es­tate mem­bers are par­tic­i­pat­ing are found at first­na­tional.com.au/ about-us/Foundation.
