Ten years ago, Finley was admitted to The Neonatal Unit at the Royal Children's Hospital when he was just one day old. He spent five months on the Unit, during which time, he received the very best of care.
He was born with a condition known as Long-Gap Oesophageal Atresia, which is a congenital blockage in the oesophagus. Fin had three major surgeries in his time at the Hospital and was discharged on 6 October 2006.
'A Celebration of Little Feet and Big Hearts' celebrates the work of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and the big hearts of all its supporters.
The next five months marks the anniversary of Finley's stay at the Royal Children's Hospital, so it is during the next five months, we are aiming to raise as much money as possible to donate to the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation.
Fin, along with his family and friends, will be bike riding from Maffra, Victoria, to the Royal Children's Hospital (230kms), busking along the way.
We are leaving from the Maffra Market at 10:30am on Sunday 2 October 2016 and will arrive at the Royal Children's Hospital at 3pm on 6 October, the anniversary of Fin's discharge date.
We will be meeting up with Finley's surgeon, Tom Clarnette, and showing Fin around the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, where it all began.
Please spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. You can keep updated on our progress and training for the big ride at https://www.facebook.com/ACelebrationofLittleFeetandBigHearts/
If you are able to make a donation, please give what you can by using the 'Give Now' button otherwise sit back and enjoy the story. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
As a family, we are so grateful to the Royal Children's Hospital, because without it, Fin and many of the sickest babies would not have a future.
Please support Fin in his efforts to give back to the Hospital that has given him the greatest gift of all.
