West Coast Eagles key forward Jack Darling recently enlisted as the newest ambassador of the Sunshine Beach Run.
Darling recently became a father following the birth of his first child in June. The 25-year-old said the arrival of his son, Max, had a profound impact on his outlook on life.
“Max has brought so much joy to our family and we couldn’t imagine a day without him by our side,” Darling said. His arrival has really driven home the importance of the Sunshine Beach Run’s cause. I encourage everyone to rally behind the event and donate generously to Red Nose.”
The Sunshine Beach Run is a morning of fun for the whole family while raising much needed funds and awareness for Red Nose, something Eagles sharp shooter Mark LeCras can vouch for after taking part in the run with his daughter Molly. I took my little daughter down there into the fun zone that they have down there, I think they’re going to have the obstacle course again this year, LeCras said. I think I’ll try and get down there and do it again.
Rebecca and Giulian lost their son Lincoln Bryn-Lloyd Booth at just 27 days old in April 2017 and will be participating in their first Sunshine Beach Run in honour of Lincoln in 2018.
Lincoln was born on Saturday 25 March and was a baby brother to Addison and Anthony.
Lincoln was born with a heart condition, undetected prior to birth and following many surgeries passed away in his parent’s arms at just 27 days old.
Whilst nothing could prepare Rebecca and Giulian for their loss, the love of family and friends, support from St. John of God Subiaco and the team at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, as well as organisations like Red Nose certainly help.
They will be taking to the sand on the 18th February with their friends and family to remember Baby Lincoln.
