My Activity Tracking
My target 120kms
I'm fundraising for The Madison Capaldi Research Fund
No one should have to bury their own child.
For the past 13 years, after the tragic and unexpected death of my daughter Madison, I have been fundraising for research into illnesses and diseases which affect babies born prematurely. After a recent meeting with the doctors who care for these sick babies, we have decided that an incubator is required in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. This vital piece of equipment could be the difference between life and death for many of these babies.
I have no doubt that trekking the Kokoda Trail will be a challenge, however, after having spent 3 months in the NICU with Madison and Charlotte, I know that the kids and their families will be doing it tougher!
Please come along and share this journey with me by donating as much as you possibly can so that future babies will have a better chance of survival.
Thankyou, onbehalf of all the premature babies and their families.
Thank you to my Sponsors
Good luck with the Kokoda Trail Joe, we know that you will complete the trek successfully. All the best from Evergreen Turf, and Dad & Daves Turf.
