Frequently asked questions

Who gets the money from this event?
Life’s Little Treasures Foundation receives all proceeds, after expenses to continue supporting families of premature and sick babies.

The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is a charity that provides support, understanding, information and assistance throughout Australia to families of children born prematurely or sick. Our services are available in the hospital (neonatal intensive and special care units) and the community when families come home.

The Foundation receives no government funding and is solely reliant on public donations with 100% of all fundraising going to the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation, who also organise the event through their staff and volunteers.

What is the remembrance ceremony?
Some families sadly have a little treasure that is now an angel. This year we will again remember these precious babies with a short ceremony at the start of the walk that we symbolise with the release of doves.

What is a Walk for Prems Warrior

Life’s Little Treasures Foundation loves to recognise its heroes and this year we are introducing the Walk for Prems Warrior.

You can become a Walk for Prems Warrior by raising a minimum of $500 as an individual.  Once this amount is reached each warrior receives recognition on our website and a limited edition Walk for Prems Warrior t-shirt to wear proudly on event day so everyone knows the impact you have made.

Why is there no longer a run event to enter?

Unfortunately due to low participation numbers and high costs we are no longer able to offer a timed running event – however, you can still run the walk event but will not receive an official time.

What if I don’t make it? Can I get a refund?
We hope you make it on the day but sometimes things don’t go to plan. Under the terms and conditions of the event, there are no refunds. Please consider this a donation to Life’s Little Treasures Foundation.

Please click on your walk location to find out more about what will happen on the day, including information about start times, parking, directions to the walk location and all the other details you need to know.

We can’t wait to see you there.
