Shave for a cure

Shave for a cure

Over several weeks, the boys source sponsorship with campaigns that reach well into the thousands. During April, Morris Hall witnessed 35 brave students take to the stage to have their heads shaved, all in support of the Leukaemia Foundation.

The highlight of the event was the announcement that a staggering $72,000 had been raised by Churchie’s team this year alone. This achievement was not only a testament to the dedication of the participants but also a testament to the generosity of the Churchie community.

During the event, students took the opportunity to share their personal stories of connection to the cause and the motivation behind their involvement. Their heartfelt accounts resonated with everyone present, from staff and students to parents who had gathered in the hall to show their support.

One notable moment was when Josh Di Bella, a familiar face at Churchie, decided to brave the shave himself this year, standing in solidarity with fundraisers like Henry Majer, who raised over $13,000 (pictured above), and Orlando Culpo, a Year 7 student who contributed over $5,000.

Nick and Lisa from the Leukaemia Foundation were also present to express their gratitude and explain how the funds raised would directly support crucial blood cancer research. Their ultimate goal? To achieve zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035—a vision that the Churchie community wholeheartedly supports.
