My Story

Hey peeps. Anyone who knows me will know how much I completely adore children. I am lucky enough (touch wood) that all of the beautiful kids in my life are happy, healthy and unburdened. Quite honestly when choosing a charity to raise money for, Starlight was already in my heart. I have friends that work and volunteer for the the Starlight foundation and when I hear of the incredible work that they do there, it makes me so happy to hear that these children are provided the opportunity to be not just 'the sick kid', but to be just 'a kid'. I can't imagine what I would do if any one of the children I know and love found themselves in a facility like this, so knowing that there are people (like my amazing mates), brightening their days where perhaps the families aren't able.....it seems invaluable to me. So I'm asking you to donate whatever you can. If any of my friends in the UK may see this as a far away cause....just remember that kiddies are kiddies, and they all deserve our help for a better life. Although I know you don't need me to tell you that!!! :) Thank you so much for your generosity and support -- it will mean a lot to me, but it will mean even more to the many babies out there who will benefit! Love you all!!

About my team: We thought they said rum...

10 weeks ago we decided to join a running club and effectively ruin our lives for 13 weeks, with the one aim: to run this half marathon! It's been really really hard, but so worth it due to having the opportunity to support such an amazing cause, whilst really ticking one of the bucket list! Please, please help us to raise some money for these beautiful kids. It means so much to us both! S & C x

About my cause: Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight's mission is "To brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families".

Because sick kids are still kids at heart...

When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood.

We know there's more to treatment than medicine. That's why since 1988, we've partnered with Australian health professionals to develop programs based on positive psychology principles that support the 'total care' of our children and teens.

Like the young people in our care, we are distinctly Australian. Our unique programs are the result of extensive research and respond to the specific needs of Aussie kids and teens.

We know what kids and their families are facing when serious illness or injury consumes their lives.

We disrupt the relentless cycle of pain and trauma and offer a welcome break so that sick kids can simply be kids.

We believe fun fights fear and wins every time.
