IDFNZ Family Conference 2016- success!
It was wonderful to see such a good turnout for this year’s family conference – we had over 120 registrations over the 2 day event, from all around New Zealand.
The speakers were excellent, covering a wide range of interesting and relevant topics. We are appreciative of the high level of support our medical professionals consistently offer the Foundation – even in their precious free time. Printouts of specific talks are available on request – contact Christine Jenden 0508300600 for copies.
Families were able to update on latest information, meet with others facing similar challenges and share strategies. Establishing friendships and networking with others that understand what you have been through can be very reassuring.
The children were amused by the Butterfly Creek attractions on offer; the nearby Rocket Ropes confidence course and Pirate mini golf were also part of the Youth programme. Families had time each afternoon to explore Butterfly Creek together as a family.
We would like to acknowledge our sponsors for making this event a success:
The Trillian Trust * COGS * North and South Trust
