About Running for Premature Babies
Running for Premature Babies was set up in 2007 by Sophie Smith after she and her late husband Ash lost their first-born triplet sons, Henry, Jasper and Evan, following an extremely premature birth at 24 weeks.
Since then, thousands of people have run for the cause, raising more than $4 million for lifesaving neonatal equipment and research giving thousands of premature babies a better chance of survival.
The Running for Premature Babies foundation is a registered Australian Charity supporting neonatal units in hospitals around the country.
