In our inaugural fundraising event for #Kids4Dementia we raised $15k, had three articles in the media, interest in the program from local, interstate and international schools and - importantly - had a load of fun! Thank you to Kensington Public School for partnering with us, to Sally & Alex and the Holmes Family for sharing your stories with the newspaper and to CHeBA's Dr Adith Mohan and daughter Akanksha for getting involved and raising funds!
Good luck to Dr Jess Baker getting this wonderful program across more primary schools. Top fundraisers who raised over their targets were teams 'Heidi & Morgane' with $2,039, 'Ruby, Marco, Mel & Glenis' with $1,728, 'Holmes Family' with $1,632 and Assistant Principal Ryan with his crew Caz & Mel who raised $1,614.
