CJD Fundraising Event In February of 2017 and 2018 we have run the successful event, A Night With the Champions, to raise awareness and funds for research for Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD), the rare and fatal brain disease we lost our wife and mum Cathy to in 2012.
We are pleased to announce that with almost 200 attendees in 2017 and 250 in 2018 along with generous donations we have raised over $22,000! At our 2018 event we were proud to announce a $15,000 grant to A/Prof Victoria Lawson and the purchase of equipment to be used by the University of Melbourne to continue the important research into CJD.
With two successful events under our belt, we are getting ready for another event in 2019 Save the date When: 1 March 2019 Where: The Committee Room at Moonee Valley Racecourse More details including how to buy tickets will arrive in your inbox shortly.
