World Prematurity Day 2017

World Prematurity Day turned into an entire week of celebration and awareness raising for us!

A huge thank you to CBHS Health Fund who kicked off our week with morning tea at Bankwest Place.

Hundreds of candle packs were put together for distribution through our hospital network to encourage people to 'light it up purple' at 7pm on World Prematurity Day to create a wave of purple light around the globe.

A snack basket was delivered to Fiona Stanley Hospital for their parent lounge along with their candle packs.

Co-founder's Amber and Madalyn together with Sacha, Rebecca, Joslyn, Imogen, Xavier and Adison attended the King Edward Memorial Hospital social work morning tea where we met a huge number of recent neonatal unit graduates.

We were honoured to have the support of Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC who wore purple and Tweeted to raise awareness of the critical issue of premature birth.

The final event of the week was the much anticipated White Collar Boxing fight night #10 'Fight Like a Premmie' held at Crown Pyramid.  More than 1,000 people came together to cheer on the boxers who gave their all.  So wonderful to see Dad Premo win his closely fought bout!

Some amazing businesses were behind the night and we wish to thank:

Ringside Boxing and Fitness

Travel Key & Festival Travel

Gobsmacked Mouthguards

Panchos Mexican Restaurant

Crown Pyramid

J Group Electrical

Kennards Hire

Killarney Autos

Galaxy Doors & Windows

Olistan Consulting

Dale Signs

We are delighted to announce that the event raised $3,500 for Tiny Sparks WA and a further $3,500 for Women & Infants Research Foundation.  Here are Donna and Darren from Ringside presenting the cheques to Amber.

All over Perth purple lights were shining brightly all night.  We are very grateful for support from the City of Perth, the Bell Tower and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority for turning many of Perth's landmarks purple.

WA your support was yet again astounding!  Many individuals and businesses held events throughout November as part of 'tiny bites for tiny sparks' raising awareness and much needed funds.  We are grateful for each and everyone of you for your support and look forward to making a bigger impact in 2018.
