Just WOW! Senseathon will change lives

Thank you to Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense Australia & New Zealand, all of the Class Leaders and Franchisees, Baby Sensory & Toddler Sense families and their supporters.

Thanks to the wonderful Senseathon event which ran right across Australia from March, 525 more families with a premature or sick newborn will have access to life-changing support from Miracle Babies Foundation’s NurtureProgram over the next 12 months.

A HUGE $35,156 was raised by Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense classes across the country and more than 4,000 families took part in the events, raising vital funds with the support of their family and friends: https://babysensorysenseathon.raisely.com/

Every year, more than 48,000 babies are born premature or sick, requiring the specialised care of the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) or SCN (Special Care Nursery). Some of these families, are those very families who helped to make this event a success.

The Senseathon events were an Australia first, as part of a newly formed collaboration between Miracle Babies Foundation and Baby Sensory Australia & New Zealand.

Many Miracle families are already involved in Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense Classes, to help their child progress developmentally in a fun and social setting, alongside other parents.

For babies born premature or sick, there can often be a delay when meeting developmental milestones and these children are at a greater risk of these developmental delays and challenges throughout their early life. The collaboration with Miracle Babies Foundation and Baby Sensory Australia & New Zealand has provided the opportunity to both celebrate our Miracle Families and raise much needed awareness of challenges associated with prematurity and sickness at birth.

“She is the absolute light of our lives and every day we are thankful for all those who have played a role in getting her and keeping her earth side. Peyton Wendy, we are so privileged that you chose us to be your parents and you are the greatest gift we have ever been given.” – Mum to Peyton

Money raised through the events will go toward the Miracle Babies NurtureProgram, including 24 Hour Family Support Line (NurtureLine), In-Hospital Support (NurtureTime) and out-of-hospital play and support groups (NurtureGroup), designed to connect families with others who have been through a similar experience.

Thank you to all involved for the amazing support!
