Neuroblastoma is a life-threatening childhood cancer most commonly occurring between the ages of just zero to five years. In order to aid the support and research for those affected by this significant condition, a group of year 12 IB students have organised a family quiz night to raise awareness of Neuroblastoma. All proceeds of this fundraiser will be going to Neuroblastoma Australia and the Bright Blue Foundation.
Hosted in the Scotch College Dickinson Centre on Saturday 3 December, this event will feature catering for dinner with non-alcoholic drinks, a quiz night with advocating guest speakers between rounds and prizes for winning tables, as well as a silent auction with a wide variety of items.
Tough Mudder is a military inspired obstacle course race, where people run a bush track about 20km long and have to conquer increasingly difficult obstacles, from crawling under barbed wire to jumping flaming hay bales up to the infamous Electric Shock Therapy.
For the truly motivated (and a bit nutty) there is World’s Toughest Mudder, a once a year event in Las Vegas where competitors run an 8km course with 16 obstacles per lap. The objective is to complete as many laps as possible in 24 hours.
Sergeant Chris James is competing in World’s Toughest Mudder this year (2016) and aiming to complete 10 laps! He thought it would be a great way to raise awareness and money for Bright Blue and help sick children. Chris is asking for a gold coin donation for every lap completed.
