About Lukes World Marathon Challenge

Luke aims to complete the 2019 World Marathon Challenge - 7 marathons, across 7 continents, within 7 days. Commencing with a marathon on the ice of the Antarctic peninsula, the World Marathon Challenge continues with Cape Town, Perth, Dubai, Madrid, Santiago and Miami. Apart from the physical and mental challenges each entrant will endure, they will travel 55.85 flight hours, across 37,014 km of air travel and experience temperatures from 7 to 30 degrees with sleep deprivation and no down time. The 2019 World Marathon Challenge will certainly push everyone to their limits. Each leg of the race, Luke will donate and raise money for charity. Santiago is the location of the sixth marathon during the 2019 World Marathon Challenge ®. The South America Intercontinental Marathon will be held on February 5th at the Parque Araucano in Santiago, Chile. Luke will be raising money for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help The Children’s Hospital at Westmead create the world we want to see.

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is the largest paediatric centre in NSW specialising in treating seriously ill children.
 
As part of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, the hospital provides specialist care for children from around Australia and across the Pacific Rim as well as community education, advocacy for improved child health and ground-breaking research into childhood illnesses, all in a positive, caring and healing environment.

Founded in 1880, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is a public hospital, with 4,467 staff across 150 departments looking after more than 80,000 sick children and their families each year. This includes around 32,000 inpatient admissions, 57,000 emergency department presentations and more than 886,000 outpatient visits.

The hospital is home to the NSW Paediatric Burns Unit, the Paediatric Liver Transplant Unit, the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance, the NSW Newborn Screening Service and National Poisons Information Centre, as well as the first Paediatric Tumour Bank in the southern hemisphere.

Research is one of the key ways in which the hospital provides the highest standard of care to sick children and their families. The Kids Research Institute leads research into childhood diseases, resulting in significant advances in the treatment of cancer, obesity, kidney, heart and respiratory illnesses, diabetes and muscular dystrophy.

Funded by the NSW Government, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead provides significant extra services thanks to the generosity of individual and corporate donors.
