Anthony Samuel Leon Kastoun aka ‘’Little Lion’’ was one of those babies. Today, he’s a happy, healthy toddler but when he was born, he required serious neonatal specialist care. He was born 14 weeks earlier than his expected due date, weighed just over 900g and spent 77 days at NICU fighting for his life.
Anthony’s parents, Victoria and Robert Kastoun held the first charity games day in 2017 at their Revolution X Performance Centre in Holroyd, to support the work of Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF).
All funds raised were directed towards the purchase of life-saving equipment for Westmead’s NICU.
Victoria and Robert continue their pledge to give back to NICU and just recently successfully held a second “Rev X Annual Charity Fundraiser Games Day” – a fundraising event that enabled this family to exceed their fundraising goal of $25,000.
With the ‘Amazing Race’ style, the enthusiastic participants who joined the games had to show their physical stamina and de-code a series of brain-teasers to get through the rounds and to claim a spot on the podium.
“Thanks to the entire Rev X community for again supporting our charity event and help us raise more than $30,000 for NICU,” Victoria said.
“Congrats to our winners, and thank you to all our participants, donors and everyone involved in helping us raise much needed funds for the world’s tiniest fighters.”
Donor generosity plays a crucial role in enhancing the treatment and care of patients at Westmead Hospital.
Westmead Medical Research Foundation wants to thank Victoria, her family, friends and their Rev X members for their incredible commitment to babies and families across western Sydney – and beyond.
