Make a move and support my Dance For Sick Kids!

When a child is injured, or diagnosed with a serious illness, it affects the whole family. Lives can be turned upside down, and it puts families under enormous pressure. For many families, it can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together.

That’s why I’m joining Ronald McDonald House Charities to Dance For Sick Kids this year.

I’ll be making a move every day for 7 days, to raise money that will help families stay in a home-away-from-home, access emotional and financial support, and more. From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes,  your help ensures that families don’t have to navigate the challenges of illness or injury alone.

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to my challenge. Your generosity will make sure that Ronald McDonald House Charities can support even more families with a seriously ill or injured child when they need it most.

My Dance Diary

So it begins

Wednesday 25th May
Today I started the 7 day challenge. Had the pleasure of finally getting back into a Zumba class tonight and joined by my Zumba buddy Susan. Cielo’s classes are awesome, so upbeat, fun and some awesome tracks and dance moves. Followed it up with some samba training.

Haven’t quite figured out how to post up vids on here yet, but probably not such a bad thing considering my peak energy levels are not there yet. But I will keep to this challenge and dance for sick kids. 

Thank you to my supporters on this page, I’m also dancing for you! 😘😘

Moving start date

Tuesday 24th May
To my amazing supporters,

First of all, thank you so much for your generous donations. It will definitely be well received by a sick child in need of support. 

As some of you may know, I have been out of action the last couple of weeks as my little man tested positive for covid and then shortly after, hubby and I tested positive. Thankfully we are on the road to recovery.

I tried to start this challenge yesterday but unfortunately still not 100%, this cough is lingering. So I am pushing the start date of this challenge out a bit. I will still do the 7 day challenge, hopefully kick start it in the next few days. I will post when that date starts. 

Again, thank you so much for your support. I’m going to smash this challenge ASAP! 

Thanks to all the generous people who’ve donated to my challenge.

MEET ANUNTA

At just 11 years old, Anunta was 100km from home, and learned that the cyst on her ankle was, in fact, a cancerous sarcoma. 

With no clothes, and nowhere to stay, Anunta’s parents, Doungnead and Anthony, didn’t know what to do. 

Thankfully, Ronald McDonald House Charities were able to provide a room for the family. When Anunta started chemotherapy, Doungnead was able to provide a taste of home, cooking fresh meals in their own little kitchen while the family focussed all their attention on her treatment.


“Being in a place where everyone cares about you, and is there for you, was so special. It became our second home” Anunta's Mum, Doungnead
