Orange is the colour of support for premature babies
ORANGE will be the colour of the day on October 25 as people walk at Bargara to support premature babies.
Each year 45,000 babies are admitted to neonatal intensive care units and special care nurseries across Australia.
The walk is to help raise money for the Life's Little Treasures Foundation which support babies and their families through their journey.
The event will start at Nielson Park and event organiser Julia Peterson said she would be collecting donations.
"I have two donation buckets to collect throughout our walk and I've made 80 orange pin ribbons to hand out on the day to wear," she said.
"I just want to help raise awareness and give back to the people who helped my family when my son Taylor was born.
"We will have a sausage sizzle for a gold coin donation also."
Mrs Peterson said the foundation would also use the money raised to provide families with a handbook which she said helped her when Taylor arrived.
"When someone donates just $10, another family receives a copy of A Guiding Hand, our hospital folder with vital information to support them during this vulnerable time," she said.
- The walk is on Sunday, October 25, from 9.30-11.30am at Nielsen Park Beach, Bargara.
- Wear orange to show your support.
