Currently we are fundraising for the following equipment for Georgia.

  • Apple I-Pad for home and school based activities.  Approx $1000.00
  • Boardmaker Plus! v.6 Approx $800.00
  • Arm & Leg Wraps (for sensory based input and stability) $150.00
  • Dynamic Second Skin Support Suit $1,900.00
  • Attendance at Spectronics Conference in Brisbane, Qld (Flights, Accommodation and Conference, 4-5 days approx $2,500)

We will also need extra funding for therapeutic services outside of school funding as the amount allocated by the Australian Government will not cover a full year of therapy.


The first fundraising event for 2012 is the “Ride for Georgia”.  We are for the second year entering a team in the Charity bicycle tour the “Murray-to-Moyne”, where cyclists ride over 500 km from Echuca to Port Fairy in Victoria.  Chris Waixel has again gathered a team of riders and we are searching for sponsors of the team.    Anyone who would like to become a sponsor can contact me.

So far we have sponsorship from the following companies:

Keables Pty Ltd

Nylec Products


All Trades Building

Ip Sec

Saward Dawson Accountants

We also have goods and services donated for the weekend (accommodation, food, transport) from:


Dennis & Kaye Body, Regency House Moama

Earth Food and Wine Cafe, Moama


Andrew Buckley and Wastech Engineering

Budget Truck Rentals

Southern Cross Meats

Croydon Cycleworks

Get Fresh Vermont

Cycling Express

Melbourne Signs

We would also like to thank the riders who have the hardest job of all – cycling for 520 km over 2 days… very sore bodies will arrive at Port Fairy on Sunday morning and we so appreciate the pain you will be going through!
