Major Charity Partner: 2019 Women's 300
The AEIOU Foundation for Children with Autism has been providing life changing early intervention since 2005. Funds allocated to AEIOU will help facilitate a refurbishment and fit out of its Toowoomba centre, enabling more children in the region access to a safe, secure and modern facility for therapy and care, including a new classroom and an upgraded playground and sensory garden.
Minor Charity Partner: 2019 Women's 300
Founded in 1906, the Mater Foundation is a group of seven hospitals committed to providing exceptional care. Besides the 10,000 babies born at Mater each year, at least 2000 seriously ill and premature infants are cared for by Mater's Neonatal Critical Unit. Donations allocated to Mater from this event will help fund a shuttle/warmer device which transports babies on their bed to theatre, eliminating the need for an incubator and the potential for clinical problems experienced by critically ill babies.
