Quinn Darragh & Luke Stewart

Take on your own challenge

Quinn and Luke Swim - English Channel 2020

Meet best mates Quinn Darragh and Luke Stewart. They love a challenge and a good cause. In September 2020 the challenge is to individually swim 36 km in very cold water from England to France.
 
They are doing this to support a cause close to both of their hearts. Quinn's son Ryder was born prematurely at 27 weeks at the Royal Hospital for Women, and he survived thanks to state of the art lifesaving equipment donated by Running for Premature Babies. One of the most important pieces of equipment that saved Ryder was a Nava Ventilator.
 
Thankfully, Ryder is now a healthy 6 year old, and now Quinn and Luke want to help others be as lucky as Ryder. That’s why they are taking on this big challenge.  By supporting Quinn and Luke you’ll be helping provide one more Nava Ventilator for the Royal Hospital for Women, which will save the lives of more than 600 critically ill and premature babies each year. You will also be helping provide two new lifesaving humidicribs for the Alice Springs Hospital neonatal unit! This unit is currently using humidicribs that are up to 20 years old and urgently need updating. Their unit cares for 350 babies each year, from a massive 2.2 million square km area, including babies from South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. 70% of the babies they care for are Indigenous.

Every donation is tax deductible, and will make a tangible difference to the lives of hundreds of sick and premature babies.
Thank you for supporting the work of the Running for Premature Babies Foundation. 


 
 

My Updates

Upping their fundraising goal!

With less than a month to go until the Big Swim, and enormous obstacles overcome along the way, Luke and Quinn have been overwhelmed with the donations that have flowed into this page and say a heartfelt THANK YOU to all their supporters.

Rather than stop at $74,000 they have decided to now up their goal to a massive $130,000 so they can provide not only a Nava ventilator to the Royal Hospital for Women, but also two new humidicribs for the Alice Springs Hospital NICU will help save the lives of babies born prematurely in the Northern Territory.  This hospital is currently using humidicribs that are up to twenty years old, and are so excited about receiving a brand new humidicrib with funds raised through Quinn and Luke's Channel swim.  

Thank you so much for your donation! All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

My niece was born here in the UK nearly 10 weeks ago and has been on some form of vent ever since. She has had incredibly care here at GOSH and now St George's and without the best equipment she would never have made it. I hope this helps someone in Oz have the same happy outcome story as me. Well done boys, I dipped a toe in the ocean the other day and that was enough for me. Good Luck x
