Olympic Park construction workers support sick kids this Christmas…

Ecove the developer of residential site Australia Towers shared this wonderful initiative with us that we just had to pass on…

Construction workers on the Australia Towers site at Sydney Olympic Park are using their substantial ‘muscle’ to raise much-needed research funds for a cruel and often undiagnosed disease called Homocystinuria (HCU).

Developer Ecove and builder Parkview are supporting the HCU charity after learning that two local boys suffer from the rare condition, whereby they are unable to process protein.

HCU Network Australia is currently taking part in the Dick Smith Foundation $1 MILLION TO CHARITY promotion. This involves buying a Dick Smith product (such as tomato sauce or peanut butter) from a Coles or Woolworths supermarket and photographing it with up to ten people. By emailing the photo to charity@dicksmith foods.com.au and adding HCU in the subject line, points will be awarded to the charity. If HCU is in the top ten charities at the end of December it will receive a donation from the Dick Smith Foundation.

Australia Towers developer Ecove jumped at the chance to help sick kids within their community. By involving their builders Parkview, over 400 workers on the Australia Towers site have jumped on board and photos are now flooding in before the December 31 deadline when the Dick Smith Foundation will award winners their share of the $1 Million.

What is HCU?
A progressive disease that leads to permanent intellectual disability, developmental delay, premature stroke and heart attack, psychiatric disturbances, seizures, lens dislocation of the eye, and skeletal abnormalities.

    reviews every day along with a mug of coffee.
