I'm fundraising for... 'You Can Stay': Youth Cancer Centres with the Sony Foundation

Hello, I’m Therese aka “T”! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and reading this.

In April, I'll be trekking the incredible Larapinta Trail for 6 days to raise much needed funds for You Can Stay, which provides emergency accommodation support for 15-25 year old’s with cancer from regional or rural areas in Australia, where the burden of cancer is disproportionately heavy.

It’s an absolute pleasure to be a part of the Sony Foundation Larapinta Trail opportunity for many reasons… 

Throughout my career with Sony Music (12 years), I have been privileged to witness some of the incredible work that the Sony Foundation do to dramatically improve the health and wellbeing of young Australians in need, including You Can, Youth Off the Streets (YOTS), Children’s Holiday Camp Program and Musicians Making A Difference (MMAD). They are the most amazing team who share their compassion, integrity and commitment and every day to make an impact.

I’ve witnessed some of this impact firsthand and it constantly blows my mind while my heart explodes. I’m honoured to be part of this trek to raise money for their cause.

I was fortunate to spend some time in the Northern Territory in May last year and loved every minute of this special and unique landscape. We acknowledge the Arrernte people of central Australia as the Traditional Owners and Custodians and are extremely grateful for allowing us the opportunity to share this magnificent place.

The trek is no doubt going to be a massive challenge, but it’s nothing compared to the resilience and commitment of these young people and their families face with cancer. I am training hard in the lead up, physically and mentally, and I know that every challenging moment on that trail will be worth it with this fundraising. 

Every $100 funds a night of emergency accommodation in a Quest Hotel for a youth cancer patient. If you can’t donate but have raffle prizes or other ideas, please DM me! 

As well as the benefit of contributing to change and feeling really good after donating, you will also receive: a thank you card, good karma, social media tagging, hugs (covid safe) and a tax deduction!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION AND SUPPORT!!! I will be thinking of you as I’m trekking across the Larapinta Trail in Arrernte Country.


Thank you to my Sponsors
