McKinnon Secondary Students Take The 24 Hour Relay Challenge
Written on the 28 November 2012
More than 700 McKinnon Secondary College students walked and ran around their oval for 24 hours from 10am on Friday the 16th of September to raise awareness and funds for organ and tissue donation.
“All of us here at McKinnon Secondary College are honoured to be able to assist this very special organisation which has already helped to save lives,” Ms Binnion said.
“We are thrilled to showcase our college’s deep commitment to important community concerns and to contribute in a significant way to ensure the community benefits.
“This is a wonderful event that brings together the entire school and local community. In 2010 we raised $15,000 for Canteen and last year $26,000 for Beyond Blue.”
A 30 student committee organised the event, which will see more than 100 parents and staff supervising students throughout the night. Tents will be erected on the oval for rest and sleep.
