I'm fundraising for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation to support the Madison Capaldi Research Fund.
Every day at The Royal, a baby's life begins, a baby's life is saved, a woman's life is saved and new research creates miracles.
The Madison Capaldi Research Fund (MCRF) was established in memory of a precious twin baby girl named Madison, who sadly passed away after developing Necrotising Entercolitis thirteen years ago. Madison’s parents Danielle and Joe Capaldi are the founders of the Research Fund, who shared a vision to raise much needed funds to support research into this devastating diagnosis which is fatal in many premature babies.
Research is the key to improving the understanding, care and outcomes of premature babies today and in the future. To date the MCRF has raised significant funds for essential research into neonatal diseases and illnesses.
The major fundraiser for the MCRF this year is an 8 day Kokoda trek in July 2018, raising much needed funds for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation.
Funds raised will go towards continuing research on premature babies and a neonatal incubator that provides optimal temperature control for neonates. The Drager Babyleo is a device that protects the little patients so they can grow, while making access to the baby quick and comfortable.
The Kokoda Challenge is more than just a trek for me. I am proud to be part of this ‘Trek for a Cause’, and delighted with the opportunity to embrace the local culture and experience the history of our diggers from 1942 on this physical and emotional journey.
If you are able, I would be thankful if you could please make a donation of any amount to help me support Danielle and Joe in their pursuit to raise $50,000 for the Madison Capaldi Research Fund to help premature babies at risk.
Thank you in advance for your contribution.
All donations are tax deductible and receipts are provided by The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation.
