RUNNING FOR PREMATURE BABIES LAUNCHES IN VICTORIA
Running for Premature Babies is an Australian charity working for a better chance of survival and quality of life for sick and premature babies. We provide life-saving neonatal equipment to neonatal units and fund research to advance the care of premature babies in the future. We inspire people to join us in running events around the country and take on challenges to raise funds for our cause. To date, we’ve raised $5 million and donated 100 pieces of neonatal equipment.
Most recently, our charity is proud to have launched for the first time in Victoria, with our first donation being an ECG machine for the Casey Hospital Special Care Nursery.
This machine is used to check the electrical activity of the heart of a premature baby with a suspected heart condition and will make a huge difference to this unit and the babies they care for.
Along with our first donation, we also have teams representing our charity in major running events in Victoria.

FAYE AND GRACE SINISTAJ
Twins Faye and Grace, born at 24 weeks, survived thanks to life-saving neonatal equipment and incredible care from the neonatal team at Monash Children’s NICU.
