Newman College will be welcoming 100 jet skis on their grounds for overnight secure parking when the Trekkers for Variety – The Children’s Charity, come to town this week. The Jet Skis will leave Port Macquarie on Saturday morning at 7am, from McInherney Park on their final leg to the finish line in Coffs Harbour aiming to raise awareness and money which last year helped more than six thousand kids in need to unleash their full potential.
Variety – the Children’s Charity supports kids and families who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with a disability. Their work allows kids to gain mobility, get out and about in the community, communicate, achieve independence and increase their self-esteem. They make sure the kids who usually miss out, can always join in.
This year’s trek travels from Batemans Bay to Coffs Harbour from 26th Feb – 4th March. This is the second time Jason Warneken – a teacher at St Joseph’s Regional College Port Macquarie, and partner Karen Warneken – Leader of VET Curriculum at Newman Senior Technical College, have been involved in the event. Each Jet ski is encouraged to raise as much money as possible for this great charity. For this event, Jason and Karen have currently raised $10,440! A remarkable effort and commitment to this worthy cause. Well done team Warneken.
