My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise funds for National Centre for Childhood Grief. It is a very special charity that cares for bereaved children and young people (3-18 years). The Centre is called, 'A Friend's Place' https://www.bereavementcare.com.au/services_children.htm It is almost 10 years since Nicholas passed away. Alek and I lost Nicholas to a serious heart condition called hypoplastic left heart in Jan 2009. James, Thomas and I are going to do this run/walk to raise money for a special charity, in his memory. Im sure if he was with us today he would be wanting to give it a go too because the Popovski boys don't like sitting still. I will need to keep up with James and Tom - I dont know if this is possible but wish me luck!

About my cause: National Centre for Childhood Grief

The National Centre for Childhood Grief (NCCG) provides loving support in a safe place, where children grieving a death can share their experience, as they learn to live with its impact on their lives.

The NCCG was founded in 1994 by Mal and Di McKissock, OAM, who are both internationally recognised for their expertise in the specialist field of childhood bereavement.

The centre also provides education and training for individuals, schools and other organisations handling the grief of children and young people.

The NCCG is a not-for-profit charity which operates at ‘A Friend’s Place’ in Sydney, Australia.
