CSU Wagga Students Rock Denim for CMRI

Students at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga have rocked double denim at a bar night on campus to raise money for Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI).

The bar night is held once a term, with all profits donated to a charity of choice. This term, CMRI was lucky to be selected. The double denim theme was inspired by CMRI’s Jeans for Genes campaign, which will be held on Friday, 4th August. Money was raised with a gold coin donation, a BBQ and a raffle.

Hughie Ryan, Luke Schultz, Helen Chamberlain, Hamish Pennington and Mike Bailey.

“There is so much the Institute can do with the money raised by CSU and we are thrilled the students and staff at CSU chose to have such fun supporting this research to help all Australian children lead a happy, healthy life,” Helen Chamberlain, President of the Wagga Wagga Committee, said. “A huge effort by students, who don’t have a lot of spare money, and everyone involved meant that $873.60 was raised for CMRI.”

CMRI is so thankful for the support of the students at CSU Wagga Wagga.
