Premmie Marathon Challenge

My Activity Tracking

47
kms

My target 42 kms

I’m taking part in the Premmie Marathon Challenge

Oscar and Monty entered the world unexpectedly at 32 weeks, weighing just 1.58kg and 1.43kg.  They spent 40 days in special care, some of this in a humidicrib, until they were strong enough to be out on their own. The boys would not have survived without this sort of care. 

It costs between $3.5k and $10k a day to care for a premature baby.

By supporting me in the ‘Premmie Marathon Challenge’ this November, (I'll be running 42kms over the month), you are helping raise 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.

This is my chance to give back for the care we received when the twins were born. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will help motivate me to get this done!

Much love and thanks, Kira x

42kms FINISHED!

42kms Finished!!!

THANK YOU to everyone who donated and supported me throughout this challenge. The generosity has been overwhelming and I am so grateful!

A big thank you to my amazing support team, Simon, Oscar, Monty and of course Gussy dog!

There is still plenty of time to donate, it's such a worthwhile cause!

Nearly there...!

... 8 kms to go...

The end is in sight! 34kms down and just 8kms to go! There's still plenty of time to donate and what better day to do so than today, World Prematurity Day! PLEASE DONATE to help ensure all premature babies receive the care they need whilst in hospital. 

Half way there!

... 21kms down... 21kms to go...

This has been a tough slog. Managing the twins and finding the time and energy to get out and get this done has been a real challenge, but it's nothing compared to having a premature baby in hospital. Coming home from the hospital without the twins was the hardest thing I've ever done, but knowing they were receiving the best care helped the days and nights pass until they could come home. PLEASE DONATE to help ensure all premature babies receive the care they need.

One week in...

Thank you to everyone who has donated! 

I'm so grateful to everyone who has supported me so far. One week in and 11kms down. Still a way to go, but I'm confident I can get it done. It's been a while since I've run like this, so it really has been a mental challenge for me too! Feeling good and ready for another week of running!
