Katelyn jumps ship!

This month, the Foundation will sadly say goodbye to an integral part of the CLCRF family, Executive Assistant Katelyn Lush.

Katelyn has been working at the Foundation for seven years and she has been such great value to the team, always showing her dedication by going above and beyond to support the cause.

In 2016, Katelyn shaved her head to raise $13,500 for childhood cancer research. She then decided to push herself and her fundraising efforts even further in 2018 by participating in the CLCRF South West Bike Trek, spending 10 months training in the lead-up to the 600km ride.

Katelyn proved that you can do anything you can set your mind to and she was one of the first to put her hand up to participate in the Bike Trek again the following year.

“I will miss working with such a great team and doing fun things to raise awareness and vital funding for child cancer research,” said Katelyn.

As sad as Katelyn’s departure is for the Foundation, we are so proud to see her be offered such an exciting opportunity at the Royal Australian Navy as a Boatswains Mate. Katelyn will start her training in March and we have no doubt that she will excel in the role.

When asked if she will continue to support the Foundation, Katelyn did not hesitate to express her dedication. “Absolutely!” Katelyn declared. “First I was a volunteer, then I became a staff member and now I will get to continue my support in a whole new way as a Member.”

As our newly appointed Communications Coordinator, Sophie Galati will be taking over Katelyn’s responsibilities at the CLCRF office. “I know I’ve got big shoes to fill,” said Sophie. “But I’m so excited to join the wonderful team at CLCRF and be a part of an organisation that does such important work.”

On behalf of everyone at the Foundation, we would like to thank Katelyn for all of her hard work and commitment over the past seven years and we wish her all the best on her new venture. The Royal Australian Navy is lucky to have you, Katelyn! Your enthusiasm, motivation and positivity will be truly missed by us all.
