On Sunday 26 July 2015, VicDeaf participated in Run Melbourne, raising an incredible $17,61 for VicDeaf’s work!
More than that, we had 15 deaf, hard of hearing and hearing runners from the community, the general public, our staff as well as our board members. This helped to raise much-needed awareness and funds for our work and the needs and rights of deaf and hard of hearing people. One of the VicDeaf Heroes, Demetrio Zema, said that the run was a fantastic way to support VicDeaf and the work they do with the deaf and hard of hearing community.
Demetrio Zema is a Melbourne lawyer who is hard of hearing and supporter of VicDeaf.
