STEPS FOR SANFIILIPPO has finished for 2020, having raised more than $46,000 research dollars in the month of November.
In August, two amazing carers set themselves a challenge. Teghan Henderson and Bree Pellow, who care for 10-year-old Skye Robson who has Sanfilippo Syndrome, rallied 15 walkers to each walk 15,000 steps per day for an entire month. They walked thousands of steps during Victoria's Covid-19 restrictions to collectively raise more than $12,000.
We were so inspired by their efforts that we decided to put the challenge out to all our Foundation's supporters Australia-wide. We asked the community to set themselves a goal to complete as many STEPS FOR SANFILIPPO as they could – any distance, anywhere, any time.
We had 89 people join us for the challenge including five families with children battling Sanfilippo. A huge congratulations to everyone who participated in this year's challenge. It was heart-warming to see all the posts and photos of participants out and about completing their steps!
We are thrilled with everyone's commitment to raising funds for research for Sanfilippo Syndrome and we look forward to seeing everyone stepping again next November!
