The Marawalk is a 42km (marathon distance) walk along the foreshore between picturesque Port Melbourne and beautiful Brighton to help TLC for Kids raise funds and reach even more sick kids in hospitals all over Australia.
‘Dack Up and Donate’ to help sick kids. Kids in hospital wear trackies to transform their mood, so Tracky Dack Day encourages Aussies to do the same to raise funds for those children who need it most.
Throughout the year there is an amazing array of events, hosted by our generous supporters. By attending an event, you’re helping support our cause to smile in the funnest way possible. Get on board!
Tragically, there are many children who – by sheer misfortune – miss out on the help they so desperately need as they don’t qualify for existing support services. TLC for Kids focuses significant attention on catching those children who fall through the gaps, including sufferers of accidents, burns, abuse, and rare illnesses. With rapid turnaround and no restrictive criteria, TLC for Kids strives to ensure that no child misses out.

My name is Ricco and Im 9 years old. I just want too thank you for my lego cars. I really like it but I haven’t started making it yet because Im just waiting for my dad too help me when he gets time because he works long hours.
I also want too thank you for my little sisters barbie bikes. Everyday when they get home from the hospital, they get on their bikes and ride it around.
Thank you for my Ben 10 bike. I love the drink bottle on the bike.”
I am supposed to be studying but all I can think about is my day at the hospital. Instead, I decided to write to Ana and yourself. As you can imagine many people have helped me with my illness. Most of them I have considered to be stars however, there are some that are shooting stars in my life. You are one of them…. No words could thank you enough for all the smiles and laughs you have given me. My time with you has had a great impact on my health. It’s true what they say, ‘Laughter is the best medicine!’ I understand laughing and smiling must be the last thing you want to do but its helped me hugely and I wouldn’t be where I am today with out it. Thank you for your on going support, laughter, encouragement…. I look forward to many more fun times with Ana, yourself and the shooting stars in my life.
Talk to you soon.”
