2021 Hike for Hope - Larapinta

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

Sanfilippo is a rare genetic condition that causes fatal brain damage. It is a type of childhood dementia and most patients never reach adulthood. There is no cure... But there is hope.

I am hiking the Larapinta Trail in June 2021! It's going to be a big challenge. But it's nothing compared to the challenge facing kids with Sanfilippo.

I help support two amazing siblings, Isla and Jude, who unfortunately have Sanfilipoo Syndrome. I have seen directly the affect this horrible disorder has on these children. Unfortunately at the moment there is no cure for Sanfilippo syndrome. Treatment focuses on easing symptoms and giving a child the best quality of life for as long as possible.


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.

All donations over AU $2 are fully tax deductible.

Thanks so much for your support.
