On Sunday 28th October families across Australia will walk together in support of the 48,000 premature or sick babies born in Australia every year – full details attached.
Walk for Prems 2018 is proudly presented by Baby Bunting and is the largest annual fundraiser for the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation, Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to supporting the families of babies born sick or prior to 37 weeks gestation.
In its 9th year, Walk for Prems will take place simultaneously in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra and Perth – as well as regional locations such as Cairns, Townsville, Ballarat, Goulburn Valley & Gippsland.
Life’s Little Treasures Foundation understands that it is not possible for everyone to attend a Walk for Prems location, so those who live far away or whose baby is still in hospital are still able to take part in Walk for Prems by registering as a Virtual Walk for Prems Team member.
Walk for Prems has raised over 1.4 million and this year Life’s Little Treasures Foundation hopes to raise $300,000.
At the beginning of each Walk for Prems 2018 event, participants will pause to show their respect for the families whose babies have sadly passed away. Life’s Little Treasures Foundation honours their babies’ memory with the ceremonial release of white doves by a family that has lost a child or a ceremonial bubble ceremony in the regional settings.
