November is global prematurity awareness month so come and celebrate the special prem in your life by taking part in the “Walk for Prems”
“Walk for Prems” will be the opening event for the Australian observance of global prematurity awareness month which culminates for National Premmie Day on the 17th November.”
All locations have been choosen as they have pram friendly tracks. In Melbourne, once you cross the finish line, pull out the picnic rug, recover with a tasty sausage and let the kids enjoy great entertainment and music. There will be market stalls to explore, cool down massages and a raffle with great prizes.
In Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth come and meet other families of premature/sick babies, enjoy going for a social walk and then enjoy a BYO picnic with your new found friends.
So on the 6th of November 2011 at locations throughout the country families, friends and supporters will walk for these special babies to help raise funds for the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation.
The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is Australia’s leading charity in providing information and support to families of children born premature or sick. Their services can be found throughout hospitals in Australia as well as supporting families within the community once they come home.
The major walk/fun run will be held at Albert Park Lake in Melbourne where participants can take part in a timed 10km run, 5km run or 5km walk. This will be followed by a wide range of entertainment including music, jumping castle, face-painting and much more, so make sure you bring your picnic rug.
