On November 13 a fundraising event called The Eureka Climb was held to raise money for disadvantaged young people and involved participants walking or running up 88 levels or 1,642 stairs of the Eureka Tower.
A West Footscray’s local Yr 8 student Hannah, who attends Footscray City College, RAN this event and raised $425! This effort placed her as the 60th highest individual fundraiser out of 712 registrants and all up over $230,000 was raised for disadvantaged young people.
Hannah did incredibly well… it was her first attempt at the event and she ended up with the second fastest time. A particularly impressive result considering she was only beaten by 11 seconds, and that was by an 18 yo student from the elite Victorian Institute of Sport. Brilliant effort Hannah!
