CMT Aussie Kids finally got to celebrate their 10 years in style when 14 Kids attended camp in Sydney, enjoying sailing on Sydney Harbour in a Sydney/Hobart yacht, thrilling to the rides at the Luna Park Amusement Park and celebrating with a harbour cruise with family. friends and supporters of the CMTAK Program, including Professors Marina Kennerson and Joshua Burns. CMT Australia was also well represented with President Robert Twin and his wife Jane, and Committee members Darryl Beitsch (and his wife Robyn) and Lisa Moore in attendance. We had 2 newbies, one from ACT (Sammy) and one from SA (Hannah). At the end of camp 15-year-old Hannah sat in her wheelchair, looked up at her Mum with tears in her eyes and said “I don’t want to go home”. That in 6 words, sums up why the Aussie Kids Program is such a success. The connections ties these young people make can be life changing.
Bring on CMTAK Camp 2023 and keep an eye out for announcements about day activities throughout this year.
