26,000 babies are born prematurely each year, with many relying on cutting edge neonatal equipment to survive.

Running for Premature Babies provides life-saving neonatal equipment to hospitals around Australia, giving critically ill and premature babies a better chance of survival. 

The charity was founded in memory of baby triplets Henry, Jasper and Evan Smith who were born in 2006 and were cared for in Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) but tragically did not survive their premature birth. To date almost $7 million has been raised, funding neonatal equipment such as humidicribs and ventilators to hospitals Australia wide, including the Monash Children’s Hospital NICU which cares for the sickest babies from all over Victoria. 

Join us to celebrate a survivor of prematurity, to honour a baby who has died, or simply to support a cause that will make a tangible difference to hundreds of families in Victoria and around Australia.

You’ll receive a free Running for Premature Babies running singlet when you raise $200. You’ll get to experience the incredible camaraderie of our team and will feel amazing crossing the line knowing you’ve helped save the lives of sick and premature babies.
