With homemade targets reading “Throw Pies, Save Lives…Support NephCure!” 100 fifth grade students and their teachers from the International School of Brussels raised $520 for NephCure Kidney International during the school’s first ever pie-throwing event on June 24.
Helped by an uncommonly sunny day, the event sparked a wonderful atmosphere for all involved.
NephCure Executive Director Henry Brehm met with the students and faculty ahead of the event to talk about FSGS & nephrotic syndrome, and the mission and mandate of the Foundation. He gave out Nephcure bracelets, which the kids wore in the days leading up to the event.
The teachers at the six whipped-cream pie-throwing stations took the hits from their students with great humor. See the fun firsthand in this video.
