We want you for Team Kids!22 June 2017
With the soaring heat of summer behind us, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors and set yourself a personal challenge. Across Sydney and NSW, Team Kids' participants are hosting and participating in events to raise funds for Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Team Kids, supported by The Income Tax Professionals, brings people together to participate in events like the Sun Herald City2Surf, Blackmores Sydney Running Festival and Tough Mudder. Whatever your passions, hobbies and fitness goals, participating in a Team Kids event is something everyone can do.
"I run in the City2Surf for Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation because my little sister, Dainere, had her treatment at the Hospital,” says Jarret, a regular Team Kids runner.
"They were able to provide the best possible care for her and I want to ensure other families are able to receive the finest care like she did."
Jarret will be taking part in the City2Surf on 13 August this year along with his teammates. They’ve named their team Dainere’s Rainbow in honour of his much-loved sister.
As a paediatric nurse at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Samantha cares for kids like Dainere every day. Knowing the amazing impact Team Kids fundraising has on her work, and on the hundreds of children she cares for, Samantha signed up to run in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival later this year with a team of fellow nurses.
“I know firsthand how much patients and families appreciate all the hard work put in by Team Kids. They are so impressed by everyone’s efforts,” says Samantha.
Sharing the experience of participating in Team Kids is also a great way for Samantha to bond with other nurses in her team, building the camaraderie and rapport essential to working in a high stress environment.
To help make a difference in the lives of sick kids you can join Team Kids runners like Jarret and Samantha.
