- Alice Springs Helping To Make Wishes Come True!
Make a wish Australia started in 1985, and the Alice Springs Chapter started in 2003. Since then 12 Alice Springs children with life threatening illnesses have been granted wishes. To be eligible for a wish a child must be between 3-18 and have a life threatening illness, they can be nominated online at the make a wish website.
The swim-a-thon was an idea Alicia, the former president of Make-A-Wish, had last year, and the event was so successful raising around $23,000 that they have decided to host one again this year. It will be held this saturday night, from 7pm to 7am, and teams are expected to have a swimmer in the water for the entire event. Some swimmers are going to swim the entire 12 hours!
Sarah Wyatt, President of the Alice Springs Make-A-Wish Branch joined Mikaela Simpson and Donna Campbell on Women’s Business.

Military enthusiast Raymond Finn, a Wangkangurruman man from far north South Australia has started a horseback journey accompanied by students from the Ntaria Senior School, who have been training the horses and preparing for the ride that will retrace the footprints of horses that proudly served our country.
