Help sick kids by turning pain, fear and stess into fun, joy and laughter

The Larapinta trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.

As part of the Trek for Starlight Kids, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.

By day, you will experience the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous Peoples. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.

Best of all you’ll be raising money for Starlight Children’s Foundation Healthier Futures Initiative.

Help sick kids by turning pain, fear and stess into fun, joy and laughter

The funds raised on the Trek for Starlight Kids: Larapinta 2018 will support Starlight’s Healthier Futures Initiative. Through this initiative, Captain Starlight travels to regional and remote areas across the Northern Territory and Western Australia, visiting almost 700 children every month.

Captain Starlight builds trust and sparks lasting relationships between health professionals, kids and the community, easing stress and pressure on healthcare clinics. By engaging with kids through song dance and storytelling, Starlight has helped to boost health clinic attendance. And by enhancing the clinic experience through Captain Starlight’s own brand of fun, community confidence in the healthcare system has increased too.

96% of health professionals who collaborate with Starlight in the Northern Territory on our Healthier Futures Initiative program rate the impact of Starlight’s programs on children as significant.
