NovoFit backs 2018 Very Special Kids foundation treadmill challenge

NovoFit backs 2018 Very Special Kids foundation treadmill challenge
May 23, 2018

Leading fitness equipment supplier NovoFit are supporting the Very Special Kids foundation with their 24 Hour Treadmill Challenge this Friday and Saturday, providing the treadmills on which participants will be running to raise $880,000 for children with life-threatening conditions at Victoria's only children's hospice.

More than a thousand participants including celebrities, sportsplayers, politicians, and people that have been touched by Very Special Kids, are expected to keep the treadmills in continuous motion to reach their charity goal.

The fundraising event will run from 9am on Friday 25th May until 9am on Saturday 26th May 2018 on 30 True Fitness treadmills supplied by NovoFit.

Very Special Kids supports families throughout their experience of caring for children with life-threatening conditions, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement. These conditions include a range of neuro-degenerative, genetic and rare conditions, muscular dystrophy and cancer. Sadly, many of these children will not reach adulthood. Very Special Kids provides practical and emotional support for the child, the parents and the siblings through a team of highly professional staff and a network of trained volunteers.
