Race for Grace 2020
We are thrilled to announce that this years' first-ever virtual Race for Grace has raised $82,191 for the Grace Centre for Newborn Intensive Care.
All funds raised will go towards research and the purchase of The Dräger© Babytherm intensive care bed. These intensive care beds provide full ventilation, monitoring, battery backup and intravenous fliud pumps so babies can be transported around the hospital for surgical interventions and imaging.
"We are so grateful that, in 2020 with all its challenges you have kept us in your hearts and continued to support us in our desire to provide the very best care for the babies we look after and their families. We would like to say thank you to everyone who registered for our Virtual Race for Grace, donated or purchased a silent auction item or raffle ticket. With your generous support we have been able to raise over $80,000 for The Grace Centre for Newborn Intensive Care,” said Professor Nadia Badawi, Medical Director and Co-Head of Grace Centre for Newborn Intensive Care.
We would like to acknowledge the effort of all of the participants who registered for the race and spread the word to their family, friends and colleagues to help us exceed our fundraising target particularly in a very challenging year.
With your generous support we can make a difference to the lives of critically-ill babies.
