River Murray Roar for Lions Hearts Learning

On 18th, 19th and 20th of Jan Lion Hearts Learning are hosting a Water-ski Marathon fundraising event called River Murray Roar. At this event, 5 boats with 5 skiers per team will attempt a 3 day 580km ski Challenge along the River Murray to raise money through donations, corporate sponsorships and team fundraising for Lion Hearts Learning.

Lion Hearts Learning (LHL) is a South Australian registered children’s charity that supports children and families impacted by cancer.

The four services they provide are:

-Face to Face – for children ages 2 – 5yrs. 

-‘On Lion’ (Online Sessions): 0 to all Primary ages (For those children who cannot attend face to face sessions due to being unwell, are in hospital or live too far away, we run a live zoom session from 10:20 – 11am Monday and Friday, incorporating a range of activities such as jolly phonics, craft, storytelling, farm education, body movement, nutrition, socialisation, show and tell and more)

-Craft and Activity Packs: 0 to all Primary ages (For children who are in hospital or at home and too unwell to participate in either face to face or online sessions. They post out craft and activity packs fortnightly to oncology children and siblings so they still have activities to do in their own time. This provides them with educational activities and entertainment, whilst also having the fun and the excitement of the packs arriving at their houses)

-Air BnB Respite- a free respite holiday home for cancer families to stay
