Maddie’s MarrowThon – getting school kids involved

It’s hard to believe what Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision (MRV) has achieved in such a short time but then again, it’s testament to what can happen when charities with common causes unite!

MRV’s latest fundraising initiative to fight Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes is Maddie’s MarrowThon, a fundraising and educational challenge for school children in years 5 – 8. Students are invited to take part in the two-week MarrowThon (22 August – 2 September) by setting themselves a personal challenge. Whether it’s a sports, arts, academic or wellbeing goal, Maddie’s MarrowThon encourages them to be brave like Maddie and step outside their comfort zone. Find out more Maddie’s MarrowThon.
