Kids Race Against the Train for Premature Babies

Sunday 19th of March
by Lorraine A (follow)
The special care nursery at Frankston Hospital is where my newborn baby boy had the fight of his life back in 2009. He was born at term but struggled to breathe unassisted. He spent his first 10 days on oxygen in a humidicrib. We were lucky that he had the specialist care and equipment that he needed to make a full recovery.

The Kids K163 Fun Run is being held to assist the families of the sickest babies by donating the proceeds of the event to help purchase a special infant transport incubator so that babies can be transported safely to other parts of the hospital for procedures that can't be performed in the nursery.

"The run is a great way to give back and be involved in the community".

Runners are encouraged to gain sponsorship for their run efforts to help raise funds for the kids at Frankston Hospital. Kids running for kids!

The target is set at $20,000 and has so far reached $7,000 as of 16th Feb.

There will be six runs held for different age groups. The runs will range from 150m up to 1,200m.

Train rides, food and activities will be available on site at an extra cost.

It's sure to be a great day out!

Date: Sunday, 19 March 2017
Time: 10am - 1pm
Location: Moorooduc Railway Station, 460 Moorooduc Highway, Moorooduc
Price: $22 per child (each registered runner receives a showbag)

Audiences of all ages will be taken on a magical journey to meet the bugs up close and personal and you'll never be able to look at the world beneath your feet in the same way again.
