Supporting Maddie Riewoldt's Vision charity
Written on the 25 January 2018
Great to spend Australia Day supporting Maddie Riewoldt's Vision charity T-20 cricket at Toorak Park with Member for Malvern Michael O'Brien and Liberal candidate for Prahran Dr Katie Allen.
Following the tragic death of Maddie Riewoldt on 24th February, 2015, Maddie Riewoldt's Vision was founded by the Riewoldt family in June 2015.
In collaboration with the Snowdome Foundation (an NFP that funds research into new treatments for blood cancers), Maddie Riewoldt's Visions aims to raise funds to #fightlikemaddie and find new treatments for Bone Marrow Failure.
The Vision aims to ultimately find a cure for the syndromes that affect younger Australians each year.
I had the honour as Chair of the Family and Community Development Committee to table the Report 'Betrayal of Trust' in the Victorian Parliament on November 13, 2013.
This Report was a result of the Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations conducted by the Family and Community Development Committee.
Premier Dr Denis Napthine said, "this is a significant and historic Inquiry and the first of its kind in Australia. The Committee has delivered an outstanding report with 15 very important recommendations."
