Har­ri­son makes a dif­fer­ence

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

A JANDAKOT res­i­dent has help raise more than $50,000 for Me­lanoma WA.

Har­ri­son Cor­field was one of a team of six peo­ple who planned, pro­duced and mar­keted an aware­ness video and helped col­lect items that were auc­tioned at a ball held by the not-for­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“It was an in­cred­i­ble feel­ing to be a part of Me­lanoma WA and work co­he­sively with some great peo­ple,” he said.

“Chief ex­ec­u­tive Clin­ton Heal has such a pos­i­tive out­look and vi­sion he wants to set and it was great to be a part of that.

“Our team ac­com­plished so much in a small time­frame and with no re­sources to start with.”

Mr Cor­field said feed­back from the aware­ness video, which fea­tured Fre­man­tle for­ward Hay­den Bal­lan­tyne, had been pos­i­tive.

The 21-year-old, who just fin­ished a chem­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing de­gree at Curtin University, was tak­ing part in the John Curtin Lead­er­ship Academy, which iden­ti­fies stu­dents for their lead­er­ship po­ten­tial and com­mit­ment to so­cial change in the com­mu­nity.

It is con­sid­ered Curtin’s premier un­der­grad­u­ate lead­er­ship pro­gram.

Mr Cor­field was among 29 stu­dents who grad­u­ated the academy on Novem­ber 4.

“A per­sonal goal of our group was also to con­tinue a strong re­la­tion­ship with Me­lanomaWA and hope to as­sist and help them in the fu­ture,” he said.
