This year we not having a fundraising dinner for VCFS, however we do have a fantastic guy/ parent of a VCFS child who in the past 3 years has turned his life around from fat couch potato to Iron Man.
He is 3 weeks away from participating in the Port Macquarie ½ Iron Man Marathon. He is running for VCFS and raising funds to help send the kids on a much needed retreat/camp. This would be the first camp of its kind in Australia for VCFS Kids.
I urge you to read his blog and if you are able donate to the cause, so all the kids get this fabulous opportunity.
Also remember to send Scott a word of encouragement.
Sometimes it takes special people to go out of their comfort zone to help raise awareness and money. I know there are many people in our communities that do this, but obviously this is one close to our heart. It is people like Scott that make me feel like all my work on the VCFS 22q11 Foundation is worthwhile.
You can also visit the VCFS site for details www.vcfsfa.org.au
