The Ryan Hart Family Day has recently held their 2nd annual fundraising day for the Leukaemia Foundation in Newtown (Geelong), Victoria.
A family fun day put together by Goodstart Early Learning Centre Newtown, and supported by many parents and businesses, including Belmont based Travel Counsellor, Kate Trickett.
Ryan Hart, a 4 year old boy that attends the Goodstart Early Learning Centre in Newtown, has been battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia since August 2010, and as a mother of 2 young boys I cant imagine what his family have been going through, so I really wanted to show my support and because I run my own business, it made it easy to do!
Kate set up one of the most popular stands at the family fun day, armed with pencils, crayons and lots of colouring paper, Kate held a colouring competition for all the kids that attended, with some serious colouring competitors in the running to win a Digital Camera & Rucksack.
It felt great to be able to offer my services and come up with something fun to entertain the kids, as it was a gold coin donation for everyone that come along to support the day. I even got to chat to lots of families about future travel plans, so as an added bonus, I was able to network my business as well. Last year they raised $9,000, this year the target was $10,000 and we were able to raise over $12,000, and the best news of all is that Ryan is now in remission! comments Kate.
