Kangaroo Valley Committee

Kangaroo Valley Committee

Established in 1959

In 1958 Sir Lorimer Dods (co-founder of Children's Medical Research Institute) visited Kangaroo Valley to raise much-needed funds for CMRI. At that time, Dorothy Brown was involved in starting the committee as President, and began catering for special events in the local area, which the committee continues to do today.

In 2018, the committee celebrated 60 years of dedicated fundraising and thanks to generous support from Valleyites, $400,000 had been contributed to CMRI and its research work over that period!


We really appreciated sharing our anniversary with Professor Roger and Dr Helen Reddel. Roger inspired us all by his insight into the past, the present and the future role of CMRI.
