Comet Bay College students will be donning their team colours and beanies this Friday in support of the FightMND Foundation.
Big Freeze 6 beanies will be sold by our Year 10 Football students throughout the week in a bid to raise the profile of Motor Neuron Disease (MND) and funds for the charity fighting for a cure.
Our Health and Physical Education staff have been proudly wearing the iconic beanies for the past two weeks and teacher Sam Mainwaring said Friday’s Footy Colours and Beanies for MND event would be a great way for staff and students to support a worthy cause.
“FightMND’s vision is a world without MND, and every beanie sold helps them get one step closer to that goal,” he said.
The FightMND beanies cost $20 each. Staff and Students will be able to purchase them during recess on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at a stall in the cafe.
The Footy Colours and Beanies for MND event will include an ice bucket challenge. For every 10 beanies sold, students will be given the opportunity to drench a staff member with icy water!
“That’s plenty of motivation for students to dig deep and support this charity,” Mr Mainwaring laughed.
Students have been invited to wear their teams’ colours on Friday for a gold coin donation, and all funds raised will be donated to the FightMND Foundation.
