The Great North Walk

Saskia’s Little Hearts Project is a group of friends working alongside Humpty Dumpty Foundation to raise awareness and community support for kids and families struggling with challenging medical conditions.

Our friend Sam Clark and his wife Polly have seen how serious illness does not discriminate. Their 18 month old niece Saskia is living with Kabuki Syndrome and is set to undergo heart surgery this month. Kabuki Syndrome is a rare condition that affects one in 90,000 Australian children, and each case has a unique set of symptoms. Like all illness, it tries to rob kids of the childhood they deserve. But thanks to Humpty Dumpty and people like Sam and Polly, the equipment and care they need is being made more accessible.

In an attempt to duplicate the incredible strength and determination Saskia has shown in her short life, Sam is taking a journey of his own this August. He will be completing The Great North Walk, a 250 kilometre bush trek from Sydney to Newcastle in Saskia’s Little Hearts Project’s first attempt to help raise much needed funds.

Their target is $15000. All donations are tax deductable and can be made directly to Humpty Dumpty by clicking here.
