Sun Up Challenge 2021

Support my Sun Up Challenge for families of children with cancer.

Every day in Australia, three families hear the words - “your child has cancer”. We are one of those families when we were told that our 2 year old daughter Georgia had Neuroblastoma. We were one of the lucky ones - Georgia had her tumour removed and recovered.  Our family was also fortunate that we had support around us - so we didn’t experience many of the pressures that families face.

So that’s  why I’m setting my alarm to join Redkite for the Sun Up Challenge – to help provide emotional and practical support to families facing childhood cancer.

I’ll be taking action by walking every morning at sun up (well around sun up!) this September, to raise money that will help families pay the bills, access emotional support, and more. 

From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes, your help ensures that families don’t have to face their child’s cancer diagnosis alone.

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to my challenge. Your generosity will make sure that Redkite can provide even more families facing childhood cancer practical and emotional support and care.
