We would like to extend a thank-you to St Peters Woodlands Grammar School, and in particular, year 5 student Mae Johnson, who organised a school fundraising event and donated all proceeds to Cure4CF Foundation. Mae, who has Cystic Fibrosis, and is the gorgeous face of the Cure4CF Foundation brochures, proactively pioneered a fundraising activity for a cause, which is so important to her and her family.
Mae showed great initiative as well as some entrepreneurial skills in organising and making over 100 cupcakes and assorted trinkets (with a little help from mum) to sell at school. She spoke at an assembly to encourage the students to get behind the cause and to explain why support for research into a cure for Cystic Fibrosis is so important.
Mae’s efforts, with the strong support of her fellow students, raised an incredible $2 238.50, the highest amount ever raised by the pupils at St Peters Woodlands Grammar! On 24th September, at school assembly, Mae presented Cure4CF Foundation Fundraising Manager, Kerry Southwell, with a cheque for the funds raised.
Once again we would like to congratulate and thank Mae and her family for their fundraising efforts and to thank St Peter’s Woodlands Grammar School for showing their support for Mae and for the Cure4CF Foundation. It is inspiring to see a young person show generous and philanthropic traits at such an early age – Mae, you should be very proud of yourself.
