This awesome little foursome are clocking up kilometres, all in the name of Sanfilippo. The Kirkman kids are no strangers to events at the Sanfilipppo Children's Foundation. Their mum, Emma Kirkman, is our awesome Fundraising Campaign Manager. When Emma broke her ankle in the weeks prior to our Steps for Sanfilippo launch, her kids decided to join together as a family and step up to the challenge. Collectively, they aim to reach 1.5 million steps this November.
What inspired you to fundraise for the Sanfilippo cause?
Our mum Emma works at the Foundation and often talks about children with this condition and the families who love them. Unfortunately, mum recently broke her ankle. She was kicking a soccer ball while hanging out the clothes. We felt really sad for her, so all the kids decided to step up and walk in her place.'
We’re pretty active during recess and lunch at school, we always take the stairs and if it’s late we do laps of the backyard. Does bouncing on the trampoline count?"
How many steps a day are you averaging?
"We are all wearing step counters and our daily steps vary a bit but together (the four of us ) we aim to reach 1.5 million steps this November. That’s a lot of steps and is the equivalent of the distance from the SCG to the MCG – for the cricket lovers amongst you!"
