Red Bow a symbol of support

Red Bow Collectors

Brisbane workers braving the morning rush hour were warned they’d see red on Friday the 13th.

The annual Red Bow Day saw hundreds of students out in force to round up donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Queensland.

250 year 11 girls from All Hallows descended on the city centre to sell the charity’s famous red bows. In a little over two hours the girls vie for the chance to raise more funds than the previous year.

“Our organization is so grateful for the funds raised by the young ladies from All Hallows every year. Their support makes a huge difference to the MD community.” said MDAQ President, Graeme Newton.

At just after 9am the girls returned to school having successfully reached their fundraising goal of $15,000. Funds raised from the day will go towards funding MDAQ’s services and vitally important equipment for Queenslanders living with Muscular Dystrophy.
