After almost 6 months of training, countless emails, CareMonkeys and outstanding fundraising efforts, it all culminated at the crack of dawn on October 28th, with 60 members of the St. Joseph’s community heading up the 1000 steps in the Dandenongs for a challenging 15km hike. It was a pleasure to witness the teamwork, determination, encouragement and sense of pride exhibited by the students, teachers and parents alike. A huge congratulations to everyone for a wonderful effort and especially to those students who achieved something that perhaps once seemed beyond their capabilities, I couldn’t have been more proud.
Thank you to everyone who has supported in anyway; a well wish, purchasing a raffle ticket, attending training or donating online, it has been the amazing St. Joseph’s community spirit truly in action.
I am so proud to say that we’ve managed to raise just shy of $6,500, a testament to the initiative shown by many of the children to come up with creative ideas to support the Kokoda Youth Foundation.
A few notables:
Another successful year of Kokoda done and dusted.
