Rob Tunningley

Rob ran the Canberra Marathon on our behalf on 11 April 2015 and raised a very impressive $2,226. Rob’s daughter Lilly is an ex-32 weeker and is his inspiration to run.

Rob says:

These little people fight so hard to live. I hope to draw on that fighting spirit around 37kms when I hit the wall and remember that no matter how hard the marathon race and training are, its nothing compared to what these tiny kids and their parents go through.”

VicRoads Metro South East

VicRoads Metro South EastLife’s Little Treasures Foundation would sincerely like to thank all the VicRoads Metro South East staff members who in June took part in their companies “Casual For a Cause” fundraising campaign. We had been very kindly nominated by Carolyn, a Life’s Little Treasures Foundation mum who works for Vic Roads to be the recipients of all the funds made from fundraising carried out. The guys were amazing and raised a whopping $1,525 which was then donated to LLT. What a fantastic initiative and what a wonderful group of people. The funds were very gratefully accepted and will go a long way in assisting us to provide the necessary LLT material to support families of premature babies in Victoria.

Once again thank you all the Metro South East staff members, we think you ROCK!
