We were delighted that the year 12 girls at St Catherine’s School could find time in their busy schedules to support the JMB Foundation and raise funds through games, exercise and eating donuts!
On 16th May the school’s year 12 group, which itself has been touched by the tragedy of acquired brain injury, got together for a survivor style ‘challenge night’. This saw the girls run, skip, build towers and eat donuts until, like TV’s Survivor, contestants were whittled down and the ultimate ‘St Catherine’s Survivors’ were crowned.
The enthusiasm of every one of the girls was infectious and overwhelming. Equally as impressive was the consumption of sugar, which kept energy levels high and, judging from the photos, ensured the creative juices flowed freely.
This night, in combination with a casual clothes day for the whole school, raised an outstanding $2,100. Through the JMB Foundation, these funds will go towards much-needed support for young people with an acquired brain injury.
The St Catherine’s School community was thrilled to be able to contribute to such a worthwhile cause – and the JMB Foundation is equally thrilled to have such wonderful support from St Catherine’s.
