Supporting SIDS and Kids SA

Eden Valley’s Del Zimmermann is on a quest to raise money for SIDS and Kids SA and will participate in next weekend’s City to Bay event.

In addition to entering the 12 kilometre run on September 20, on Monday night Del will launch an online auction, Sam in the Stars, to raise further funds for the cause.

Her inspiration stems from the loss of Sam Grope last year to SIDS and recognising the support the organisation provided to her
friends and Sam’s parents, Lesleah and Scott during that time.

“This is all for Lesleah and Scott,” said Del.

“SIDS and Kids has been there for them.”

Del said having her own children “hits home” how terrible it is to lose a young child.

She is seeking the support from businesses across the region to donate items or vouchers to the auction, which will be held through the Wild Goose Chace Designs facebook page – www.facebook.com/Wildgoosechacedesigns.

“Any donation counts and helps to spread the word,” said Del, who is hoping to beat last year’s donation of $3,000.

And when it comes to preparation for the run,
Del plans to ramp up her training.

“It has been a busy couple of months,” said Del.

“My goal last year was just to finish it…this year
I want to better my time.”
