You did it!!

Thank You So Much

 

Dear Supporter
On Sunday, October 29th, thousands of families gathered at locations around Australia to participate in Life’s Little Treasures Foundation’s 8th annual Walk for Prems.  This year we held 11 walks around the country in Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, Warragul, Ballarat, Townsville and Cairns. Then, there were those of you who also joined in with your celebrations at home or in a hospital or at your local park. A big thank you for participating and making Walk for Prems an incredible Australian community event.

Every year we are inspired by the generosity and passion shown by everyone who participates. Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers across the country who help us stage the walks, to the suppliers at each location who provided entertainment and food, to everyone who registered, to our wonderful Presenting Partner, Baby Bunting and Sponsors Medela Australia, BritaxHuggies Australia, Earlybirds, Grill’d and Cold Fusion Capital who helped us achieve the biggest Walk for Prems event EVER!!. We were so delighted to have such wonderful companies on board helping us support families of premature and sick babies.

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that not only did you all help us reach our target this year, you raised much more. 

The final tally for the 2017 Walk for Prems is a staggering $310,000

We are just blown away by how the community has come together and supported us in such a huge way, this means so much to us and so much to how we can approach 2018, knowing we can continue assisting families across Australia.

Wherever you were, a big thank you again for showing such amazing support and raising funds for Life’s Little Treasures Foundation, we were so touched by all the great stories. Thanks to all of you, Walk for Prems 2017 was a fabulous day and another fantastic success.   We could not do it without your generous support.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Warm Wishes
