I am Dancing for Sick Kids!

This May, I will be Dancing for Sick Kids!

Please show your support by sponsoring me today.

All funds raised will help seriously ill or injured children and their families by providing a home-away-from-home at Ronald McDonald House, whilst they receive critical care and treatment.

On average, it costs Ronald McDonald House Charities $160 to support a family for one night, so please give what you can, every dollar counts. Something that is close to my heart and family as we have needed that financial support whilst undergoing years on years of treatment for Syiah with her open heart surgery and Malakai with his many difficulties. This support means the absolute world to the families receiving it and takes a HUGE stress of of their shoulders. Dancing and raising funds, please support me and the Toowoomba line dancing team. So much love to you all

Thank you for helping me make a difference!

I'm dancing for seriously ill children like Emily.

At just four years old Emily was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer and a life-threatening brain tumor. Since then her family has spent 149 nights (and counting) at Ronald McDonald House.

"I think sometimes, as parents, we focus on our sick child who needs the help the most, but we all need help. So that is something I love about the (Ronald McDonald) House, is that we can be together through the journey"

– Jono, Emily's Dad
