About Sarah Cafferky

Sarah Cafferkey was like any young Australian woman. She loved to dance, and she loved her friends and her family. She had an incredibly bubbly and happy personality, and was loyal and open minded.

As life happens, Sarah found herself struggling. She reached out to Djerriwarrh Health Services with the help of her mother and was grateful for the services and support that were there to help her. There were times though that, despite her efforts, her troubles would find her. And in one particular day of darkness, so did a cruel man, who ultimately took her life.

How will the funds be used?

All money raised goes directly to Djerriwarrh Health Services to expand the Adolescent and Young Adult 12-24 year) services in the Bacchus Marsh area, in consultation with Sarah's family.
