Secondary College held an out-of-uniform day on Wednesday, May 24 to raise money for River’s Gift via Ironman for Noah to stamp out Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
The college’s 390 students, as well as staff members, raised a total of $371.05.
The highest donor was teacher Lauren McKeown and in second place was Year 12 student Casarni Misiagi.
Special mention also went to the third-place donors who only missed out on a prize by a couple of dollars: Jane Grenfell, Jett Rothe and Courtney Vogel.
River’s Gift fundraising representative Leanne May thanked the school’s SRC co-ordinator Mrs Grenfell and the whole college for their efforts.
‘‘Every dollar helps us to breathe life into sudden infant death research,’’ Ms May said.
‘‘The community support has been overwhelming and we could not do this without everyone’s help and support.
‘‘We originally had a goal of $10000, we have now reached this, sitting at $12336 to date; we now have the $15000 mark in sight.’’
Ironman for Noah’s Adrian Hayward competed in the Cairns Ironman on Sunday.
