About Running for Premature Babies
RFPB was set up in 2007 by Sophie Smith. After she and husband Ash lost their first-born triplet sons, Henry, Jasper and Evan, following an extremely premature birth at 24 weeks.
Since then, thousands of people have run with the team, supporting the research and equipment needs of the Royal Hospital for Women’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), raising more than $2.5 million.
In 2017, Running for Premature Babies became an Australian-registered charity.
