WHY 21 AUGUST?

21 August marks the 16th birthday of triplets Henry, Jasper & Evan Smith, in whose memory Running for Premature Babies was founded. We are celebrating this milestone with our first ever multi-event Kids Fun Run, which celebrates all prematurely born children, living and lost, and will give premature babies a better chance of survival. Thank you so much for being part of this special milestone - we hope your kids have the best day!

If you'd like to know more about Henry, Jasper & Evan and the Running for Premature Babies story please watch this clip from The Project.

How the Kids Fun Run works

The concept is simple...

All children (from 2 – 12 years old) walk or run as many laps as they can. No distance is too short, none too far (within the time limit)

Entry is $25 and everyone receives a T-shirt and a special finisher’s medal.

Prams welcome and parents can run with kids!

Register

Registration is $25 and all finishers receive a FREE T-Shirt and finishers medal.  Fundraising is optional.

Share

Share your challenge with friends and family and fundraise to give premature babies a better chance of survival.

Run or Walk or Wheel

Run or walk as far as you can at your location or do it yourself anywhere on the day.  1 lap or 50, it doesn't matter.  Get out and have fun.
