Date/Time: October 23, 2022
Location: Melbourne Pavillion
Organiser: Andrew Carpino with Derrimut Gyms and Ultimate Legends
Thanks to the amazing efforts of Nikolaos Solomos (Derrimut 24:7 Gym), the Australian NPC Disease Foundation was able to hold a stall within the Melbourne Pavillion. Hosted by Legends Promotions, our amazing valunteers sold raffle tickets and merchandise throughout the event. $2,970 was donated from Nikolaos' ticket sales, $1,345 from raffle tickets sold on the night, and the remaining amount was raised through merchandise and generous donations in the crowd. But that's not all!
More than fundraising, our real fight begins with raising awareness. Whilst many are familiar with adult dementia, very few Australians are aware that Niemann-Pick disease is one of sevety plus diseases that cause dementia in children. Thanks to the crew at Legends Promotions, we had the opportunity to play the "What is Childhood Dementia?" video before a speech from Andrew Carpino to raise awareness for Niemann-Pick Disease Type C specifically.
