Come join us on Sunday 13 August and walk, run or stagger the 14 kms from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach and help the "All for Trace" team finish their goal of raising $300,000 to fund a room in the new Bone Marrow Transplant ward at Sydney's St. Vincent's Hospital. With over $240,000 already raised we are ALMOST at the finish line.
Each year over a 1000 people suffering with blood cancers undergo a bone marrow transplant, a very confronting treatment and usually carried out as a treatment of last resort. Trace Richey had a bone marrow transplant in February of 2015 at St. Vincent's where he was provided with the best care anyone could ever hope for. He fought with every fibre of his being, never giving up hope and yet STILL trying to put a smile on the faces of those doctors and nurses working tirelessly to save his life. His courage and bravery were truly inspirational but sadly he lost his battle in April of that year. He spent his entire life both personally and professionally raising money for others so it is with much love we decided to dedicate one of the rooms in the new ward after him, a cost of $300,000. This room will help countless future patients and give them the best possible chance of a full recovery, a legacy Trace would be so proud of.
With only $60,000 left to raise we are one the home stretch, so please join the All for Trace team and help us cross the finish line and reach our target. There will also be a bar at the end... Trace would LOVE that xx Love ewes xx
