Students, parents and staff from Hilliard Christian School (Tasmania) donned their running gear to raise money for one of the school mums who has been diagnosed with cancer.

The school has started a club called “Running for A Cause” to give students an opportunity to get involved in service, including entering local fun run events to raise money for charity.

When the club heard that a young school mum, Samantha Dickinson, was battling cancer, they decided to fundraise for her by entering the City to Casino fun run in Hobart. The group raised more than $A1600.

Mrs Dickinson visited the school recently with her family to receive the cheque, and spoke about how touched she felt by what the school had done and how loved she felt by the Hilliard community. The school captains led in a prayer for Mrs Dickinson at the conclusion of the assembly.
