On Friday 24th July, Ms. Yong ran to school in order to complete the UNHCR 5km challenge.

"It’s the first time I’ve run in a while due to knee injuries but it felt so good to be doing something I love while contributing to a worthy cause. I’m in a fair bit of pain today but I know this is nothing compared to what other people are experiencing across the world. This challenge asks us to donate $5 to https://run-for-heroes-aus.raisely.com/ to help protect millions of refugees from Covid-19. "

  • $5 can provide soap to 3 people to last for seven weeks
  • $10 can help provide 4 people with safe water containers
  • $25 can provide 2 urban refugees with a cash grant to buy essential hygiene items
  • $50 can provide 3 people with primary healthcare services

 

Ms. Yong's 5 nominees to take on this challenge are:

  1. Mr Achmad
  2. Mr Howard 
  3. Ms Khan
  4. Ms Carrasco
