Street Organics is proud to support Grow Foundation – a unique Melbourne-based charity which offers support  & natural health solutions to families of children with special needs.

For the past 5 years, a small group of kids has participated in the Melbourne Marathon to raise funds for Grow Foundation.

This year, a group of our staff will be running with a group of over 50 kids – and we would love your help!

These kids run 3km, 5.7km or 10km – because they want to help other children who can’t run, walk, see or speak like they can.

Some of them even set up their own fundraising efforts to help raise more – amazing!!

The team’s target is $20,000-  We are nearly half way there!

 

Our son Gryffin will run 5.7km this year. He is one of the original Grow Foundation children (you can read his story here), and now he runs to help other kids the way that he was helped –  it’s his 4th time in this event, and his biggest distance yet! 

Yesterday Olympian Tamsyn Lewis came to training to inspire the kids and they are very excited!

If you can spare a donation however small – even $5 puts a massive smile on the faces of these kids who have been training for months for this event!

Unlike some events where kids raise funds for charity, this takes dedication over many months, working toward a noble goal, and we are so proud of these amazing children!

 

Gryff has his own fundraising page – you can sponsor him here

But whether it’s Gryffin or any of the kids running this weekend, we would be so grateful for your support!

THANK YOU!!!

To Health & Happiness, Kristen xo
