Stu­dents step out in PMH fundraiser

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Nearyou -

RUN­NING laps of Christ Church Gram­mar School, stu­dents raised more than $10,000 for the Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion last month. Moyes House cap­tain Daniel Pelkowitz said choos­ing the foun­da­tion as its house char­ity was an easy de­ci­sion to make. “It is a char­ity we can all iden­tify with be­cause of the con­nec­tions and ex­pe­ri­ences we have had,” Daniel said. The house pre­fects or­gan­ised a fun run, where boys were spon­sored to run laps of the play­ing fields, with oc­ca­sional chal­lenge sta­tions in­clud­ing wa­ter slides and dodge ball. “We had over 100 peo­ple take part in the event, with ev­ery­one con­tribut­ing to make it a suc­cess­ful and fun morn­ing,” Moyes House vice-cap­tain Ju­lian Ming said. PMH Foun­da­tion com­mu­nity fundrais­ing man­ager Fiona Dick­son said the con­tri­bu­tion would help to pro­vide vi­tal med­i­cal equip­ment and spe­cial­ist staff at the hos­pi­tal. “Once it has been de­cided where this gen­er­ous do­na­tion will go, the boys will be able to come and see what it means for the kids in the hos­pi­tal,” Ms Dick­son said.
