12 Feb Febfast team closing in on $5000 target
Our team of Febfasters have already raised more than $2000 for disadvantaged young Australians and they’re urging locals to dig deep to help them reach their $5000 target.
Timboon and District Healthcare Service’s Febfast team are nearing the half-way mark of their commitment to ‘pause for the cause’.
They’ve given up everything from alcohol, sugar and coffee to being inactive – with members overcoming bad habits and cravings to raise awareness and money.
TDHS chair Maryanne Puli Vogels said the group was made up of board members, staff, contractors and community members in the area who wanted to make a difference.
“We’re on track to reach our $5000 target, but only just as we’re half way through February this Thursday. The pressure is really on to lift our fundraising and finish strong,” she said.
“It’s not too late to make a difference and support this wonderful cause by jumping online and sponsoring the team, or a single member of the team.
“For $53 you can help a young person get to and from school to access education.
“For $68 you can help an at-risk teenager access specialised drug and alcohol education through the YoDAA service or for $112 you can fund one family therapy session so that a young person can start to rebuild trusted relationships with their family.
“Even a couple of dollars will contribute to the life of a young person who needs our help.”
Ms Puli Vogels urged everyone to visit www.febfast.org.au/fundraiser/tdhsfebfastteam to show their support.
