How You Can Support Monash with Fundraising for Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS)
In May 2020, the 15 for 15 challenge will raise awareness and funds for Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Money raised will assist the Department of Paediatrics at Monash University to develop a desperately needed state-wide, evidence-based model of care for children with Prader-Willi Syndrome.
The project will be led by Professor Katrina Williams at the department of paediatrics at Monash University in close consultation with Assoc. Professor Tom Connell from the Royal Children’s Hospital. The program will be developed for implementation at both major Victorian paediatric hospitals (Monash Children’s Hospital and the Royal Children’s Hospital) with regional links.
So what is the 15 for 15 Challenge and how can you get involved?
What do you think you could do for a 15-day self-challenge? Perhaps you could give up your daily coffee, or walk a certain amount of kilometres each day, you could style your hair crazily each day or wear Orange clothing (the official colour of PWS Awareness) each day?
The choice is yours but it needs to be something that both you and those close to you, see as a distinct challenge so they will sponsor and perhaps even join you.
We have all been in lock-down over the past couple of months and a lot of us still have a little more time on our hands than usual. Here is a chance to contribute to a worthy cause and do something that will challenge yourself.
