20 years supporting kids at PMH

By Emma Pass, Member Services Manager – Little Athletics 

We are excited to be celebrating 20 years of Little Athletics centres supporting the Foundation.

 

Supporting the Foundation is one of the many ways our members bring the Little Athletics motto of “be your best” to life.  By doing their best to help kids in hospital, children involved with our centres learn valuable life lessons.

 

Each year Little Athletics centres across WA hold a special fundraising day to support kids in hospital.  Lots of great activities are organised including sausage sizzles, bake sales, tin-shaking, inter-club competitions, parent and toddler races, and much more.

 

Over $265,000 has been raised to help the children.

In recent years, Little Athletics funds have supported the Artist in Residence program, which provides much needed distraction for kids and families at PMH.
