Suzy's charity trek to Peru with Turia Pitt for Interplast
Donate & share to show your support
I have decided to make a difference by creating my very own fundraising appeal for Interplast Australia & New Zealand. After two years of significant health issues and ongoing challenges leaving me tube fed but determined to make a difference for a cause close to my heart after recently meeting the inspirational Turia Pitt I will join her team fundraising for Interplast! I also recently lost my little sister Jo-Anne whose memory I dedicate this journey to.
By joining Turia’s Inca Trail Challenge I will help Interplast repair bodies and rebuild lives throughout the Asia Pacific region. For decades, Interplast has worked on the ground in some of the world’s poorest countries to provide free surgical treatment and facilitate safe, healthier and more sustainable healthcare initiatives.
With our support, Interplast's teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals can continue to provide free surgical treatment to patients living with treatable disabilities such as cleft lip and palate, burn scars and severe hand injuries. The funds I raise as part of this incredible adventure will also enable Interplast to train the next generation of surgical leaders in the countries in which they work. Through education, training and mentoring programs we empower local medical personnel to perform life-saving procedures independently.
