Sunday July 23 was cold and overcast and whilst everyone was rugged up and standing around a warm fire, Michelle was changing into a wetsuit and batman costume, ready to jump into the chilly 11 degree water. Thank you to our boat captains Courtney and Regan Bairstow for helping us to fulfil Michelle’s Dare and donating your time and boat.
Well patronised by the Lake Grace Kukerin Hockey Club, Michelle braved the cold for HeartKidsWA and a CRC Community Bouncy Castle Initiative. Not only are you a superhero, but a great sport, thank you Michelle for being a part of this year’s challenge!
During the month of May the community got behind Michelle Gooding, Louisa Dare and Rick Noble as they took part in our 2017 MAYyouDARE challenge. Over the month of May, the community raised $962.70 from the annual MAYyouDARE challenge with Michelle Gooding receiving the largest donation. A total of $481.35 has been donated to Michelle’s charity of choice, HeartKids WA. The remaining 50% will contribute towards purchasing a community bouncy castle and our ongoing efforts to do so.
If you have a brilliant dare or would like to nominate someone for the next MAYyouDARE, please let us know! Call the CRC on 9863 4829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
