Dylan's big effort
Tuesday, 25th May, 2010
Twelve-year-old Broken Hill High School student Dylan Stone has raised more than $1000 for the Golden Circle fundraiser this year.
Dylan has been raising money for three weeks, and when he started he told his father Scott that $1000 was his goal.
"When he said he wanted to raise $1000, I didn't believe him and shrugged it off," Mr Stone said.
"But then he reached $400 and he kept going."
Mr Stone said that Dylan sets himself goals and almost always acheives them.
The fundraiser asked students to ask people to sponsor them to run in the cross country race that was recently.
Half of all proceeds go to charity while the other half goes towards the PE department at Broken Hill High.
Dylan also has a keen interest in sport and plays cricket, karate, tennis, skating and basketball.
He also has a passion for hockey and coaches a primary school hockey team in his spare time.
Dylan also hopes to devote some of his free time to the Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal which is coming up soon.
