1 in 10 babies are born premature. The Hike for Health is your opportunity to provide better, healthier outcomes for newborns and their families .
The Hike for Health brings together supporters from various Australian and New Zealand health and medical research organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China. You’ll be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for a health organisation close to your heart. You’ll stand united, as a team, atop the Great Wall, knowing the difference you’ve made.
On the Hike for Health, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.
Starting in Beijing, you’ll quickly swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the majesty of the Great Wall. You will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Immerse yourself in the ancient history of this World Wonder, explore Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
Best of all, you will raise vital funds to support Miracle Babies Foundation to achieve better, healthier outcomes for premature and sick newborns and their families..
The Hike for Health’s goal is to raise critical funds for health and medical charities in Australia and New Zealand. We want to assist health and medical research organisations to provide the best possible outcomes for Australian and Kiwis.
Every year in Australia around 48,000 newborn babies require the help of a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Special Care Nursery (SCN). More than 27,000 of these babies are born premature and up to 1,000 babies lose their fight for life.
For families, the experience of having a baby come into the world not as expected or planned is life changing. Without support, this overwhelming and traumatic experience can have lifelong effects on the emotional wellbeing of these miracle families. It affects the entire family unit.
Just $67 can provide support to a premature or sick newborn and their family during their first year.
Every dollar you raise through this incredible adventure will help Miracle Babies Foundation provide vital programs and resources to support and enhance a family’s experience from a threatened pregnancy, hospital journey with a premature or sick newborn, the transition to home and beyond.
