Firm commits to supporting charity through viral virtual event
With $1 million already raised to support children with special needs and newborn care through past events, one law firm is sticking to its commitment with a virtual event.
With the option to participate virtually, remotely or socially distanced, Coleman Greig’s large corporate charity race will be continuing despite the global coronavirus pandemic with a goal of adding to the already $1 million raised for children’s foundations.
The Coleman Greig Virtual Challenge, which will kick off mid-September, has accepted donations already. At the time of writing, the event had raised over $11,000 for Westmead Hospital Foundation and St Gabriel’s School in Castle Hill.
Westmead Hospital Foundation plans to purchase BiliSoft machinery for babies who are born with jaundice, enabling mothers to take their babies home with them sooner. St Gabriel’s will be using the donations to help deliver educational programs and assist in funding science and food technology resources for their secondary school program.
The event founder and head of the commercial property team Andrew Grima said the challenge “is about individuals and businesses having the opportunity to make a real difference in the community” through supporting young, vulnerable children.
