Running for Darcy

By Emily Lamrock

My Activity Tracking


My target 100 kms

I'm running 100 Kms for this great cause

Darcy was born on the 30th December 2020 at Westmead hospital in Sydney, 4000 kilometres from home. 
Darcy was found to have two holes in his heart and what looked to be fluid on his lungs so there was no question that we had to be close to a major hospital for his birth and surgery to fix his heart. 
Grappling with the news our unborn baby had so many complications our thoughts turned to how we could afford to stay together in Sydney during peak season with a new baby on the way. 
Ronald Mc Donald house in Westmead was a silver lining on the dark days we had throughout Darcy’s time in hospital. Not only did we have a clean, safe, and comfortable place to rest, we also had the opportunity to connect with other families and share support when going through the tough times. Our older son Brock has fond memories of our stay at Ronald McDonald house and whilst it was certainly no holiday for us I’m grateful for the sense of normalcy we had and the time we had together.
Ronald Mc Donald house provides such an important service for so many families. When your child is seriously unwell you are emotionally, mentally and physically exhausted you need your family around you to draw on their strength and love to help you cope with the immense stress and challenge.

We spent close to 100 days at Ronald McDonald house which is why I plan to run k’s for days, and take on the challenge of running 100 km to scout camp and back to Nhulunbuy on the 15th on July 2022 in honour of Darcy and his strength. 
We would love your support in helping champion Ronald McDonald house charities Sydney. Any amount you can afford will be greatly appreciated and could give a family the best gift of all - time together.

Thank you for your support,
From Emily, Troy, Brock and Darcy x

Dear Emily, SRC raised this money at school by selling Icy-cups. Melena and the SRC made the icy-cups and the students were all enthusiastic about buying them.
