Lachy's Team

Premmie Marathon Challenge 2021

Help us give premature babies a better chance of survival

I'm Lachy Wiggle and I'm a proud ambassador of Running for Premature Babies.Β 

This November is Prematurity Awareness Month and I'm taking on the 'Premmie Marathon Challenge' to give premature babies a better chance of survival.Β  I'd love you to join me!

I'll be running my 42km marathon throughout the whole month of November. I'll be running 3kms at a time, with a goal to run faster each time!

How will you do yours? You can choose to complete your 42km over a day, a week or a month like me!Β 

If you can raise $50 you'll receive a sparkly finishers medal, and if you can raise $200 you'll also receive a free running singlet and cap!

I can't wait for you to join my team :)Β 

Lachy xoxo

Zainab, our NICU journey was across the pond and only for a couple of weeks but your story resonated so very close to home; from waking to the pumping alarm and empty cot to the daily challenge of hunting down a decent chair to spend the next 14+ hours parked on. The hospital where our son Ru was born had recently opened a parents room which had been funded by initiatives like Running for Prems. It provided a safe haven for parents in NICU. It was a place where we could retreat for for 5 minutes with coffee/ tea, fridges, microwaves, comfy chairs and TV, etc to allow us to have a snack for 5 mins in a tranquil environment, away from the constant bustle and buzzing of the hospital and NICU. Those calm 5 minutes were life savers and allowed us the ability to reset and go back to our boy with a smile, even on the rockiest of days. If it hadn't been for the generosity of the local community and people like you taking the time to raise funds we wouldn't have had that space and what was an already tumultuous time would have been that little bit more difficult. Congratulations on your amazing efforts for a wonderful cause. I have no doubt there will be parents out there in the future beyond grateful for the ease of finding that comfy chair or of course the availability of an incubator for their precious arrival. I will be following your running journey with great interest and with much support!! All the very best, Nicole, Miles and baby Ru (8 weeks old, 6 weeks prem) xx
