Let’s walk together in support of premature and sick babies

The facts are 48,000 premature or sick babies are born in Australia each year[1], with your help the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation can support these families along their journey.

On Sunday 28th October families across Australia will walk together to celebrate our Little Treasures, remember their Little Angels and raise funds to provide vital services for families in need of support.

Walk for Prems 2018 is proudly presented by Baby Bunting and is the largest annual fundraiser by Life’s Little Treasures Foundation, Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to supporting the families of babies born sick or prior to 37 weeks gestation. Its families helping families.

In its 9th year, the WALK will take place simultaneously across 12 locations  – Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra and Perth – as well as regional locations such as Cairns, Townsville, Ballarat, Goulburn Valley & Gippsland.

The Walk has raised over 1.4 million dollars and this year the 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 one of these families.

We understand that it is not possible for everyone to attend Walk for Prems 2018. Those who live far away or whose baby is still in hospital are still able to take part in Walk by registering as a Virtual Walk for Prems Team member.
