While most students were at home participating in Online Learning, Year 8 Student Liam Laidlaw from De La Salle Malvern, along with his cousin Ronan, decided they wanted to do something active and challenging for charity.
The young men decided they would run 1km each hour, on the hour, from 7.00am until 7.00pm on Saturday 6 June. Liam and Ronan set an approximate target of $500 to which they would donate to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, a very worthy cause. The Great Barrier Reef Foundation is an Australian nonprofit organisation established in 1999 to help protect and preserve the Great Barrier Reef.
The pair set up a Facebook page calling for donations and by the end of the day, they had raised a total of $969.34. We are extremely proud of Liam, who has demonstrated Lasallian values throughout this initiative. Well done!
