Dainere’s Rainbow Awareness Stall At Tennis ACT Girls Get Active Day

On a splendiferous Autumn Sunday in Canberra on 3rd March 2024, Dainere’s Rainbow were honoured and grateful to have been chosen as a Charity Partner for Tennis ACT Girls Get Active Day and have an awareness stall.

This event was meaningful as Dainere, was a devoted athlete, competing as an AWD athlete at Athletics ACT competitions and represented her school, Burgmann Anglican School at Zone and ACT levels.  She also competed in school cross country.

She was awarded U16 ACT AWD Athlete of the Year in 2012-13, teaching and inspiring others to never give up, you are a winner by simply having a go and there are no obstacles to competing in and enjoying sport.

At the Girls Get Active Day we were able to speak to a wide variety of people about Dainere, her sporting achievements, childhood brain cancer and the work that we do to make a difference for the Canberra Community.

As Dainere had a special love for teddy bears, her favourite being Theodore, those who visited the stall were given their own special friend to be with them and perhaps help them with their sporting endeavours.

We sold several of Dainere’s and Jarrett’s books on the day and raised $222.55 which goes directly to the vital research projects and programs set up as a legacy and in memory of Dainere.

With our heartfelt gratitude to all who visited the stall on the day and took the time to learn more about childhood brain cancer, Dainere and the fund.  We also wish to express our endless and sincere gratitude to both CBR Massge for suggesting Dainere’s Rainbow as a Charity for the event and to Tennis ACT for having us there.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.
