City-Bay with TeamKids
*Registrations are now open for the 2017 Sunday Mail City-Bay Fun Run!*
When you choose to fundraise for TeamKids, you're supporting SA's sick kids and their families at the Women's and Children's Hospital. This year, all funds raised will go towards making the TeamKids Beach House project a reality!
So join TeamKids, led by our 2017 City-Bay Ambassador, Thandi (16), as we run, jog, walk or wheel our way across the finish line in support of the TeamKids Beach House project; South Australia's FIRST purpose-built holiday house for families with children suffering from a chronic or life limiting illness who require complex care.
Meet Thandi. At age three Thandi was rushed to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital late one night after a ‘bad cold’ worsened. What was thought to initially just be a viral infection turned out to be Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). Thirteen years later, and after a devastating relapse at age six, Thandi constantly surprises with her sporting and academic successes. As the daughter of a former Australian swimmer, Thandi is naturally drawn to athletics, taking part in cross country, distance track events and swimming competitions from a young age, both at a State and National level. This passion for sports as well as her own experiences at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital makes her the perfect choice for the TeamKids City-Bay Young Ambassador.
“…when I stand behind the starters line or on the blocks, I look around me and I think to myself, none of you have had to go through what I have been through...and it makes me more determined to beat them. You shouldn't underestimate me or others with life experiences like me; we're pretty determined.”
