Running For Premature Babies Kids Fun Run
In August 2016, Phillips Pantzer Donnelley was proud to be the Major Sponsor of the 2016 Kids Run For Premature Babies Fun Run held in Grant Reserve, Coogee. Set up by inspiring mother Sophie Smith after she and her husband Ash lost their first-born triplet sons, Henry, Jasper and Evan, following an extremely premature birth at 24 weeks. Many of the children who join in were premature babies themselves, some of them spending their first days, weeks and months using equipment donated by RFPB.
“We are so honoured that PPD generously partnered with us at Running For Premature Babies through our Kids RFPB Fun Run. They have gone above and beyond what we expected from a partner, enthusiastically promoting our event through their channels, volunteering their staff to help out on the day, and even enrolling their own kids to take part! Their generous donation helped us raise $12,500 for prematurity research at the Royal Hospital for Women.” Sophie Smith, Founder
