Walk for Prems 2020 is going Virtual!

Due to public health restrictions Walk for Prems 2020 will be going virtual. In this year of COVID-19 the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is reliant on Walk for Prems more than ever, to enable us to continue to provide our services to families of premature and sick babies.

We are absolutely aware that many of our supporters are also doing it tough during this time. Therefore with the help of our sponsors we have priced our registration fees at the lowest amount possible.

We will also be holding some fantastic virtual activities on the day!

Our services are needed more than ever during this difficult time and we are doing our best to keep up with demand and therefore for need your support – every $ helps.

Walk for Prems 2020 is going virtual

For the past 11 years, families, friends and supporters have come together to walk, connect and celebrate, whilst raising money and awareness for premature and sick babies.

This year we’ll still be walking for the same reason and with the same sense of purpose and connection. However, due to the current health pandemic, in the interests of protecting everyone (especially our precious prems!) we are encouraging participants to walk in small groups on a 5km route of their choosing on Sunday October 25, 2020.

Feel good. Do good.

Living in isolation is something prem families are all too familiar with and why we want to make sure that this walk is one that encourages people to reach out to each other, to enjoy the benefits of exercise and being outdoors and to feel part of something really positive. Enjoy the fun and spirit of being part of this wonderful community event.

Without your support this year, premature and sick babies and their Australian families could miss out on the help and care they need in 2021.

2020 has been all sorts of memorable (and not for the right reasons). So make your year better and join us for our Virtual Walk on October 25.
