Super focus on disorder
JELLYBEANS Childcare Como was swarming with superheroes last week to raise awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy Australia.
The 2015 Superhero Day saw the caped crusaders dressed up and ready to help in the fight against muscular dystrophy, a genetic disorder that results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function.
Centre director Jenna Lee Marriott said the centre was on a mission to help bring more information and acknowledgement of the disorder to light.
“This cause plays a big part in all our hearts here at Como, as we know children who are affected and it’s something no person or family should have to go through,” she said.
“We raised $150 on the day but for us it’s about raising awareness; the funds raised are just a bonus.”
According to Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia, the disorder affects approximately 100 in 100,000 people.
Jellybeans staff and children got into the spirit.
