My target 42 kms

I’m taking part in the Premmie Marathon Challenge

Thank you for supporting ‘Premmie Marathon Challenge’ this November, raising funds for urgently needed lifesaving humidicribs for the Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney, and the Alice Springs Hospital neonatal units, giving hundreds of premature babies a better chance of survival.

The why...

Our boy Jesper was born at 30 weeks – 10 weeks premature, and weighed 1452grams. We saw him defibrillated twice, right there in front of us. He had a lumbar puncture at 3 days old to determine the best way to tackle an infection on his brain. He had a PDA hole in his heart, and like Sophie’s boy Jasper, he had (and still has) chronic lung disease, with his lungs collapsing a couple of times during the 49 days he spent in the Neonatal ICU. To this day he has medication twice daily. Without the critical life-saving equipment that existed, he probably would not be here today.

From 3pm onward on World Premmie Day (Tuesday 17/11/2020) I will run the entire marathon in one go – around my office building in Lithgow…

I'm doing this to raise funds to purchase life-saving equipment so other premmies have a chance at this gift of life also.
