2021 Hike for Hope - Larapinta

I am fundraising for a future where no child suffers from Sanfilippo Syndrome.

In memory of our gorgeous son Dylan, I am taking on the 2021 Hike for Hope Larapinta in June! 

This is personal, having watched Dylan slow down over time and die in our arms at age 12 due to Sanfilippo. It's going to be tough - 5 days, trekking over 66 km in the Australian outback. But it's nothing compared to the challenge facing kids with Sanfilippo, and their families.  

Sanfilippo is a rare genetic condition that causes fatal brain damage. Children with this condition have an enzyme deficiency which means they are unable to process the waste that builds up in their cells, causing damage throughout the body, especially the brain. Sanfilippo is a type of childhood dementia with no treatment or cure. Life expectancy is just 12-20 years, and most patients never reach adulthood. But there is hope.

Hubby Matt and I are covering the cost of the trip so 100% of your donation will go towards funding vital research projects that show potential to halt disease progression; repair damage caused by the condition; or improve the quality of life for children suffering from Sanfilippo. 

Times are tough, so any donations are greatly appreciated and will help make a difference!

Thanks so much for your support.

Thank you to my Sponsors
