Help me give premature babies a better chance of survival by running 115km on the Heyson trail in October!
By supporting my challenge, you'll be raising funds to buy life-saving equipment and fund groundbreaking research that give critically ill and premature babies a better chance of survival.
I myself am a survivor of prematurity having been born a few months before my due date and weighing in at 1.4kg. I spent the start of my life surrounded by life-saving equipment which kept me alive. My parents were told I would die, and in fact I actually did with my heart stopping 3 times during my first days. It was only though medical intervention and resources available at the hospital I was at, plus my fighting spirit that I survived and not only that, I THRIVED to where I am today. Who could think what would have been had I not survived...I have achieved so much in my life, and through the work I do at Running Mums Australia I share incredible causes close to my heart. This year I am running my 11th Ultramarathon on the Heyson Trail in October. It will be over 115km, and each step I take will be for those babies who didn't have the chance to live like I did, and for those babies who are miracles who survived the odds, or continue to fight on with issues from their prematurity. I would love you to join in supporting my training and run in raising as much funds as possible to help families across Australia just like mine.
