Event Description

Zaidee Rose Alexander Turner, aged 7 years and 22 days, died suddenly on 2 December 2004 from a Cerebral Aneurism. Zaidee donated her organs and tissues at the Royal Children’s Hospital, as were her wishes at the time. From this gift, the lives of seven other people were improved or saved. Zaidee’s parents, Kim and Allan, founded Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation to raise awareness of the need for increased organ and tissue donor registration in Australia. COVID has negatively impacted organ and tissue donation in Australia and the message is as important now as ever.

This event raises money for Zaidee’s and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, who are literally researching how to fix children’s broken hearts.

Register and select a challenge distance to run over the month of October. The challenge distances are 25km, 50km, 100km, 150km and 200+km. You can also create a team and we’ve already had interest from a couple of Mums groups.

To help you fundraise and share your experience, check out the resource page to find downloadable social content. Sharing your experience on your social channels is a great way to fundraise and to help Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation raise awareness of the growing gap between the need for organs and registered donors.
