Pram Jam, pushing for healthy mums & bubs
It’s a harrowing fact that one in 130 pregnancies in Australia ends in stillbirth – which is tragically more than the national annual road toll.
Around the world, a baby dies from prematurity every 30 seconds – and according to the World Health Organization, premature birth is the number one killer of children aged under five.
We want to change these statistics but we need your help!
Pram Jam is calling on mothers, fathers, grandparents, family and friends to walk, run or push a pram from Monday 20 November to Sunday 26 November 2017.
No pram? No problem! Feel free to register, walk the distance over the week and help us raise funds for the cause. Anyone can take part!
Registration is easy.
Just follow these six easy steps and start fundraising today!
1) Choose how far you think you can push for the week
2) Choose to complete your challenge every day, across the week or on one specific day (e.g. 30 minutes a day, 20km for the week, 10km on Saturday. it’s up to you)
3) If you plan to run, check with your doctor
4) Register as an individual or a team
5) Ask your family, friends and work mates to donate for the distance you cover
6) Push your pram, walk or run and track your distance/time on your fundraising page
Proceeds go towards Mercy Health Foundation to support ongoing care, research, education and treatments that will advance the health and wellbeing of mums and bubs in Australia. You’ll be raising much needed funds to help prevent stillbirth and complications from bubs being born prematurely.
