Coogee Climb

I am Climbing Coogee For The Royal

I will be taking part in Australia’s steepest hill challenge in support of The Royal. This is the hospital that looked after my first grandchildren - Patrick and Jack Byrne - identical twin boys who were born at 28 weeks. I was privileged to be with the boys during their first week in the NICU and a second time before they were finally discharged near their due date. I will be forever thankful for the fantastic care they received resulting in two happy healthy grandchildren.


Each year, The Royal provides healthcare for over 10,000 women and delivers around the clock care for over 1,000 premature and critically-ill babies in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. The Royal Hospital for Women also represents the pinnacle in women’s health care practice, delivering over 4,000 babies each year with a number of globally recognised midwifery programs and specialised services.


Your donation will not only support my run up the steepest hill, but will help provide The Royal with leading-edge technology and advanced medical equipment to enable doctors, nurses and specialist staff to deliver the best possible outcomes for women, babies and families.

Thank you for your support and helping me help women and babies!

Thank you to my Sponsors
