Mr Kevin Frawley, College Council Chair, and Ms Karen Jebb, Principal, warmly invite you to the 2019 Outstanding Alumnae Awards Evening on Wednesday 28 August 2019.
Join us as we celebrate this year’s recipient, Rebecca Daniher, for her outstanding commitment and dedication to raising funds for the Fight MND Foundation, in the pursuit of finding a cure for Motor Neuron Disease.
After graduating from Genazzano in 2008, Bec went on to represent Victoria in both junior and senior level rowing, winning two Queen’s Cups during her time. She had the honour of being selected to represent Australia, culminating in the World Championships in 2013 in South Korea. Her rowing success was honoured by Genazzano with a rowing squad named after her, along with other alumnae who represented Victoria.
Bec then completed a Bachelor of Business at RMIT and went on to pursue a career in accountancy, working in the field of finance as an Accountant for several years. During this time, Bec’s family were faced with the difficult news that her father and much beloved AFL personality and former player/coach, Neale Daniher, had been diagnosed with MND (Motor Neuron Disease). The disease is known to be cruel and leave sufferers an average of 27 months of life to live, with no known cure or treatment. Bec decided to make the change from accountancy to the not-for-profit sector, and took the opportunity to work alongside her dad to take up the fight against the beast (MND).

Date: Wednesday 28 August
