Please join Running for Premature Babies in the Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival on 2 October and help us give premature babies a better chance of survival.

Whether you have a direct connection to prematurity or not, everyone is welcome! Raise $200 and receive a free running singlet. You'll feel amazing knowing that your race is about so much more than your finishing time!
Did you know 1 in 10 babies are born prematurely in Australia each year, with many needing life-saving neonatal equipment to survive. Running for Premature Babies is fundraising for urgently needed equipment for the Monash Childrens Hospital which has the biggest and busiest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Victoria. This unit provides care to more than 2,000 of Victoria’s most vulnerable newborns each year.
The funds you raise will give premature babies in Victoria, and beyond, a better chance of survival.
Our charity has helped save the lives of more than 8000 babies - you can read about some of them here: https://www.runningforprematurebabies.com/specialstories
With your help we can provide more life-saving neonatal equipment to ensure more families get to take their babies home.
