Portland Observer and Guardian – PSC teacher raises almost $700 for Motor Neurone Disease

After being challenged to complete the ALS/MND Ice Bucket Challenge by my former teacher, Nick Smith, I followed through on a Tuesday lunchtime at Portland Secondary College in front of a crowd of around 200 staff and students. To raise the stakes, and through the help of students, I braved myself to dunk 9 buckets of ice-filled water over my head.

I’m proud to have been a part of the movement to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for the disease known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Motor Neurone Disorder (MND). Through the efforts of a group of Year 11 students, we were able to raise over $300 form staff and students at PSC, an amount I will match.

Donations can be made to MND Australia at https://www.mndaust.asn.au/How-your-donation-helps/Ways-to-donate.aspx.

Thanks to the Portland Observer and Guardian for covering the event!
