Walk for Prems 2018

We are so pleased and proud to tell you that it was our biggest and most successful ever! Our goal was to raise $300,000, we smashed it and raised $381,738 which was a staggering 21.5% up on last year’s excellent result. The money raised will enable Life’s Little Treasures Foundation to continue assisting families with a premature or sick baby. We will be able to continue supplying hospitals (now 121 throughout Australia) with our comprehensive publications, hosting in-hospital morning teas, providing financial assistance and running our 24 hour Support Line to name a few. In 2018 we were able to add part-time Peer Support Co-Ordinators in Victoria and the ACT. These Co-Ordinators work with our Hospitals to ensure families have access to the many products and services we offer as well as Veteran Parent Support through family centred care programs. In 2019, we hope to expand this as well as our NICU Food from the Heart program.

So huge thank you to everyone who Walked, Ran, Fundraised, Donated to the Walk fund to help make it the amazing success it was. We couldn’t do it without your support.

Next year’s date is Sunday 27thOctober, so lock it in your diary

Pictures from the various walk locations can be seen in our online Facebook Walk albums here, but here’s a little taster…
