Canberra Walk for Prems FAQ

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.
