Runners achieve amazing things
When you sign up to run for Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation you sign up to make a real difference to the thousands of sick and injured children who need our hospital each year. That’s patients like Coco, who thanks to the generous support of fundraisers like you, took her first steps at five years old.
Accomplishing simple tasks like walking, putting shoes on or going down stairs can be difficult for eight-year-old Coco who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, but through regular therapy and the assistance of Sydney Children’s Hospital she has made incredible progress.
She simply doesn’t give up, she never has.
