Walk for Prems Adelaide
Walk for Prems is back bigger and better for a 9th year. Walk in support of premature and sick babies.
The facts are 48,000 premature or sick babies are born in Australia each year, but with your help the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation can support these families along their journey. On Sunday 28th October families across Australia will walk together to celebrate their Little Treasures, remember their Little Angels and raise funds to provide vital services for families in need of support.
At the beginning of each Walk for Prems 2018 event, participants will pause to show their respect for the families whose babies have sadly passed away. Life’s Little Treasures Foundation honours their babies’ memory with the ceremonial release of white doves by one of these families.
After enjoying a walk around Karrawirra, join the ambassadors and supporters who come together to make it an enjoyable and memorable day. Bring a picnic and relax with other families while the kids enjoy the entertainment like face painting and a jumping castle.
The Adelaide walk is 3.5km long, however you can turn back at any time or take the short 2km option.
