CSU student fundraising assists medical research


Wednesday, 10 May 2017

Students at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga have again shown their support for the community after raising more than $800 for the Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI).

As part of the Jeans for Genes fundraising program, the University's Residence Life student leaders hosted a 'Double Denim' event on campus on Wednesday 3 May.

Students donated a gold coin to attend the barbeque to raise money for research to cure and treat childhood diseases.

A cheque for $873 was presented to the Institute's Ms Helen Chamberlain on Wednesday 10 May by Head Resident and veterinary science student Mr Hughie Ryan (left). He was accompanied by fellow students Mr Luke Schulz and Mr Hamish Pennington and CSU assistant catering manager Mr Mike Bailey (far right).
