Cure Our Kids Carnival 2008
28th July 2008. A very big thanks to each and every one of our members, your participation in the Mufti Day made me very proud to belong to an Association where everyone comes on board and supports not only the Association's venture, but also the wonderful organisation of Camp Quality.

Mufti Day 2008
On July 4 this year, Patrick Murphy was one of 20 extraordinary people, 10 Camp Quality Newcastle Companions and 10 "Friends of Camp Quality" who took on the challenge of the Kokoda Trail.
They walked the gruelling 96 kilometres over 7 days in memory of all the Camp Quality kids who have passed away, in an effort to bring awareness to the battle these kids have endured. The aim was to raise $90,000 so Camp Quality can take the special kids with cancer to their first ever Snow Camp.

Snow Camp is very expensive, as each child requires their own Companion to be with them, plus several Camp Leaders and nurses to go along. Most of the kids have never seen snow.
Camp Quality does not receive any government funding, so they need to raise the whole amount. All participants in the Challenge are so committed to this cause that they paid their own way to Kokoda, so that every cent raised will go straight to the kids.
The idea of doing the Kokoda Challenge eventuated after seeing first hand how brave these special kids are confronting every challenge they are faced with. Kokoda is about Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice. These special kids display these characteristics each day of their life as they fight their battle with cancer.
