|PJ Day, run by Asthma Australia, is a fun way for organisation and children to raise vital funds for asthma research and education, and to show their support for kids with asthma across the country.
The Subiaco Children’s Centre will be supporting this by running our very own PJ Day during the school holidays on the 16th of July! A gold coin donation will be appreciated to support Asthma Australia’s research and development into helping children with asthma.
More about ‘PJ Day’
PJ Day is Asthma Australia’s community fundraising event held every winter to raise money for asthma research. 1 in 9 Australian kids are impacted by asthma, and it is one of the leading reasons Aussie kids miss school.
PJ Day was founded in 2009 by Montanna, a young girl who was living with asthma. She spent a lot of time in hospital and in her PJs, so she wanted to find a way to support asthma research with the hope of one day finding a cure. Montanna came to us at Asthma Australia with her idea of staying in your PJs as a fun way to raise money for asthma. Join us in making Montanna’s idea bigger and better this year and raise vital funds for asthma research.
