6 day trip, 4 day challenge
Twin-share in a 4-star hotel and comfortable swag camping
Every year in Australia around 48,000 newborn babies require the help of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN). Around 27,000 of these babies are born premature and up to 1,000 babies lose their fight for life. You can help the families involved on the Trek for their Future.
Over four extraordinary days, you’ll take part in a hiking adventure that explores some of the most spectacular parts of the Australian outback. In fact, some hikers say the Larapinta Trail, which traverses the West MacDonnell Ranges, is one of the finest multi-day walking adventures anywhere in the world. Track its ridgelines through the Central Desert, and take in the majesty of this exceptional landscape. At night, you’ll rest your head beneath a sky filled with stars.
Are you ready to lace up your boots and support Miracle Babies Foundation as they help premature and sick newborns and their families? This is an adventure you’ll never forget and the chance to give back.
The Difference You'll Make
The experience of having and caring for a premature or sick newborn is isolating. Parents in this situation can find it hard to relate to others – the trauma of watching their baby fight for their life, then going home without the baby, remains with them for years or even a lifetime.
Your fundraising during Trek For Their Future Larapinta 2023 will provide more of the 48,000 families impacted each year with upport that reduces parental stress, improves attachment, bonding and social connection, and empowers parents to make informed health choices.
Every $143 you raise will provide full support to one family throughout their hospital journey, which could mean weeks or months under specialised care.
