Fundraising for Catholic Charities:
Fun in the sun
St John the Apostle Parish School, Christie’s Beach, held its second annual Walk a Mile fundraiser run in August. Students from all year levels walked around the school with different size containers of water depending on their age to raise money for a Dominican charity and Catholic Charities.The aim of the event is to educate students about social justice and ethical issues while empowering them to change the lives of people who are less fortunate than they are. Annie O’Neill, who represented Catholic Charities at the fundraiser said the weather was kind and the sun shone brightly even though many of the students ended up wearing more of the water than carrying it.
“Everyone had fun for a good cause,” she said.
Last year St John the Apostle Catholic School students showed their solidarity with those less fortunate than themselves by holding a Walk for Water on August 3.
The Christies Beach school fundraiser involved students being sponsored for walking laps of the school while carrying containers of water, in recognition of lack of access to water in overseas countries.
Money raised will be divided between Catholic Charities and a Dominican charity. The event was organised by Jamie Mulcahy, APRIM at St John the Apostle, who has organised similar events at St Raphael’s School, St Catherine’s in Stirling and the former St Teresa’s in Brighton. See photos below! Well done everyone!
(The donations amount includes money raised since 2015).
