Skip For Rejection

The Skip For Rejection is taking place this Sunday - 13th November.

It's the next fundraising event for the Margaret Pratt Foundation.
For those who may be new around these parts.... from the website:

The Margaret Pratt Foundation Heart Lung Transplant Trust is a registered charity whose aim is to encourage, develop and maintain Australia’s world class expertise in the field of organ transplantation by supporting research that addresses the problems faced by children and adults after heart and lung transplant. 

The aim of the research must be to improve the outcomes for heart and lung transplant recipients. 

The Margaret Pratt Foundation has donated $700,000 to date in 2011 to promote research into the causes and prevention of chronic lung rejection.

 On Sunday, Chris Pratt is going to attempt to run/skip 80 kms... all the way from Geelong to Melbourne.

 There are 8 checkpoints along the way with volunteers and collection tins for anyone who would like to come along and make a donation.

The finishing line is at The Woolshed Pub at Docklands, where everyone is invited to come along and show their support for the event and the foundation. Drinks and meals are available - it might be the perfect place for Sunday night dinner!

There'll be more events like this next year, so please pop on over and like the Skip for Rejection Facebook page to keep up with the latest news. You can also check out the official website for the event information and the fundraising tally.

Thanks for your support!
