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.
“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.”
Running the Sydney Herald Half Marathon on 17 May 2015
Ran an unbelievable four ultra-marathons (100km each), four weeks apart, for four different charities at the end of 2014. He chose LLTF as one of the recipients because his nephew was born 6 weeks premature and Life’s Little Treasures Foundation supported his family through the first few months.
A huge thank you to Michael Seychell, National Business Manager for Vodafone Hutchison Australia, who ran the Gold Coast Marathon (42.2km) to raise funds for the LLT Foundation. He completed it in an fantastic 3hrs 46 mins and raised a whopping $8000, $3,000 of which was donated by his company through the Vodafone Foundation in their match giving program. We can’t thank Michael enough for this amazing feat & the Vodafone Foundation for their generosity.
National Australia Bank
In May 2011, a group of National Australia Bank volunteers very kindly took the day off work as part of their Employee Giving Progam & came to work with the Foundation. We were thrilled to have them on board and together packed 2000 hospital survival packs for families of sick & premature babies currently in hospital, which contain vital resource information. We look forward to continuing this great relationship.
