Very Special Kids Footy Fever Debate raises over $200,000

CMC attended the Very Special Kids Footy Fever breakfast debate this morning where $202, 983 was raised for the charity.

At the breakfast, a panel made of footballers and journalists Mathew Richardson, Cameron Ling, Samantha Lane, Michael Felgate and John Deeks debated on whether footballers are smarter than journalists.

The humorous and sometimes fiery debate made for a fun morning and more importantly, a great way to raise awareness and funds for such a worthy cause.

CMC’s Charity partner, Very Special Kids, is a unique organisation that supports families throughout their experience of caring for children with life-threatening conditions, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement.

The services are offered free of charge by a team of professional family support workers and hospice staff, who have backgrounds in social work, psychology, family therapy and nursing. These staff are supported by trained family volunteers.

The organisation has operated Very Special Kids House since 1996, Australia’s first and Victoria’s only children’s hospice, providing planned and emergency respite and end-of-life care.
