From NICU Fundraiser Amazing Race at Rev X – Events page
Inspired by Head Coach Rob’s son, Anthony Kastoun AKA ‘’Little Lion’’’, who was born on 15 January 2016, 14 weeks earlier than his expected due date, and weighing just over 900g.
The reality is that Anthony is just one in ten premature births. Many spending their first few months of life in a 4×4 incubator attached to more wires than one will ever see in their life.
So it is our pledge to ‘give’ to the tiniest fighters our world has by raising funds to help purchase life-saving equipment. Our first goal, is to raise enough money to donate a full humidity crib.
Last year we raised: $13738.55
Our goal this year is to reach: $25,000
You can contribute in any of the following ways:
– Participate in the Games Day, entry is by donation, teams of 3 (RXD and Scaled)
– Plus more fun and games to be revealed…
Or simply go to the fundraising page to make a donation:

During a recent visit to Westmead Hospital, the event sponsors got a behind the scenes insight at how funds raised by WMRF are used in different areas of the hospital.
Paul Noppen, Darren Delaney and Mark Davis, from Noppen Group, together with Parramatta Chamber of Commerce Board member Rosa Bellisimo, visited The Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre (CPMCC) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Westmead.
CPMCC nurse unit manager radiation oncology Noeline Ranzac – who is also a golf fan – thanked the sponsors for their commitment to this year’s event.
“Some of the equipment we use daily at the centre was purchased with funds received from sponsors and supporters of events like golf days,” Noeline said.
“The incredible generosity of donors funding state-of-the-art equipment allows us to improve the therapy of patients through their difficult cancer journey.”
At NICU, the sponsors met nurse unit manager John Whittaker who explained the importance of having equipment with advanced features available at the ward.
“A perfect example is the PANDA Resuscitaire, a machine that keeps a newborn at optimum temperature and has the ability to provide breathing assistance if the baby requires it,” John said.
“Thank you to Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, Noppen Group for visiting, and all the sponsors of this year Charity Golf Day.”
The 2018 Charity Golf Day in support of the Foundation will be held on May 8 at Oatlands Golf Club. Golfers and guests will play a round of golf and then enjoy lunch to raise funds to support medical research and patient care at Westmead.
