About Dale Sheppard


My name is Dale Sheppard and this year I'm pushing my wheelchair in the Melbourne Marathon on 14th of October - that's right the full 42kms! A huge challenge that I'm definitely up for. I’m raising money for Starlight Children's Foundation, an organisation that brightens the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

In 1994 Starlight granted my brother a Starlight Wish and sent our family on an incredible holiday, where we were able to escape the pain of hospital treatments, and just have fun! Starlight helped us to see that no matter how hard life can be, there’s always something to smile about. It was truly an amazing experience, that we all still reflect on with great fondness.

This year, Starlight celebrates 30 years of bringing fun, joy and laughter to sick kids and their families. Please join me in raising $200,000 by 14th of October so Starlight can make another 30 Starlight Wishes come true and create memories that last a life-time. Just like the memories they created for my brother and our family.

Remember "doing a little a lot - gets a lot done!". Every dollar counts and will help us grant 30 Starlight Wishes for families facing difficult situations.

About 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.
