PADDLE 4 HARLIE

Danny Crossely is on a mission to raise funds for Harlie. Danny along with Ian Gow and Nev Byron joined forces with the Harlie Russell Foundation to be sponsored to make an incredible journey paddling along the Murray River.

It was a massive effort by not only these incredible men but their families as well, following closely on dry land. Enduring hot days, cold nights and injuries along the way, these true heroes completed the journey of 2,100km which took 5 weeks and 2 days while raiseing over $10,000 for the Harlie Russell Foundation.

August 15 2017

As the day of Harlie's SDR surgery approached, the butterflies kicked in. Harlie wanted nothing more than to see the reassuring faces of her friends and family. 

The word spread fast and soon, hundreds of supporters from all over the world jumped on board and on August 15, the day of Harlie's surgery, "thumbs up" selfies flooded Harlie's Facebook page to show support.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?

HAIRCUT 4 HARLIE

Maddie is a 9 year old girl from South Australia who suffers from rotational scoliosis. Maddie often endures chest pains and regular hospital visits. However, Maddie is just like any other young girl. She loves dressing up, in particular rocking some cool hairstyles with her beautiful long hair.

On July 6th 2017, Maddie cut her beautiful long hair to raise much needed funds for Harlie. With help from her local community and school, Maddie raised over $1,000 for the Harlie Russell Foundation!

BOWLS, BEERS & BBQ
