We’ve been participating in the HBF Run for a Reason as an organisation for the past 5 years and it’s always an excellent event! We would love for you to run, jog, wheel or walk your chosen distance as part of our team on Sunday May 19.
This year we are hoping to raise enough to complete a special project we’ve been thinking about for a little while. With several hospitals moving to Family Integrated Care (or similar) many parents are spending more time at hospital with their babies. Everyday 10 new WA families are thrown into the chaos that is the neonatal unit.
We’ve spoken with families, consulted with the hospitals, and they were wrapped with our plans! The funds raised from this years HBF Run for a Reason will directly fund items for 4 hospitals and include -
several phone recharging stations
creation of new milestone cards which will be downloadable FREE from our website
several milestone card display boards, containing printed cards for parents to use and keep when in hospital
several customisable ‘going home’ signs so families can take a photo when being discharged
We’ve negotiated discounts and in-kind support, but to achieve all of this we need to raise $7,240. We are so hopeful of surpassing this target, and extra funds will go straight into our Care Package program.
If you haven’t already signed up, take advantage of the early bird special and register to be part of our team. Choose ‘Individual’ then ‘I’m part of a team’. The team name is Tiny Sparks WA.
