Yalari Supporter, Dan Pittorino Has Done it Again!
Dan’s our man!
From running a marathon through the Moroccan desert in 2017 to hosting Yalari information evenings in the middle of London, Dan never has Yalari far from his heart.
“So, due to the lock-down, there is no dinner to attend nor any wild race on the calendar to compete in, to garner support for Yalari”, Dan wrote in an email to his friends and colleagues.
“You might remember two Indigenous boys I had spoken about for 5 or 6 years. They have both graduated from Riverview and are off making a success of themselves in their chosen fields,” he continues. “Now, excitingly, there is a lovely young Indigenous girl who has started on a Yalari scholarship inSydney, at Kambala, who could use our support.”
Dan encouraged his network of friends to sponsor him per kilometre as he jogged up a total of 65.5km, and raised nearly $2,000.
A huge thank you to Dan and your troop of fabulous supporters.What a wonderful gesture of your ongoing commitment to educating and empowering Indigenous children.
