Life’s Little Treasures are Walking For Prems

Wednesday 24th October / presented by Mat Cal

With 1 in 6 babies being born premature, the impact of premature births is significant and traumatic for many families. Rusty Benson, ambassador and board member of Life's Little Treasures foundation joined Mat on the Mag to discuss the the work that the foundation does to provide support, friendship and information for families of premature or sick babies. The organisation was started in 2005 by a group of parents who saw the lack of support provided in this area and wanted to do something about it.

On Sunday 28th October, families across Australia will walk together in support of the 48,000 premature or sick babies born in Australia every year. In its 9th year, Life's Little Treasure's Walk for Prems will take place simultaneously in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra and Perth – as well as regional locations such as Cairns, Townsville, Ballarat, Goulburn Valley & Gippsland.

The Perth event will be held this Sunday at Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth starting at 9.30am.
