Leaping Livers 2020

Leaping Livers Lapping the Lagoon is a highly anticipated annual walk around Narrabeen Lagoon. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation regrets to advise that the physical walk of Leaping Livers Lapping the Lagoon due to be held on Sunday 26 July has been cancelled. 

The outbreak of coronavirus has caused some challenges for everyone and due to the risk posed by being in crowds, it is a necessary precaution to cancel this event to ensure that you, as well as our staff, patients & families are not put at risk.

However, we still need your support which is why this year; Leaping Livers Lapping the Lagoon will be virtual!

WHEN: 1-31 July, 2020

WHAT:  “Do 9, Nominate 9!” 

Choose a 9km adventure over the month of July and nominate 9 of your family and friends to take part.

Below are just some suggestions:

  • Walk 9km each week
  • Run 9km everyday
  • Cycle up to 9km over the whole month

Get creative with your adventure but please remember physical distancing practices must be adhered to.

COST: Adult $30, Child $10 / Adult + shirt $45, Child + shirt $25

WHERE: Anywhere!

HOW: Spread the word about your 9km adventure and ask your family, friends and co-workers for their support.

In the meantime if you have any questions, please contact Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Event Manager, Katrina Topfer.


Can I still do a virtual walk?

Yes, we would love you to do the walk in your own time and your own preferred location.  We want you to wear your Leaping Livers shirt with pride and encourage you to take photo’s and share them with us. Make sure to tag @WestmeadKids and use the hashtag #LeapingLivers2020

Can I still fundraise?

Yes you still can and we really appreciate your generous support.  As COVID-19 has changed so many of our daily rituals, you could ask friends and families to donate their morning coffee money or their travel/petrol money.

What are ways my fundraising money will be used?

Your fundraising money goes towards our Liver Unit at The Children's Hospital at Westmead so they can continue to provide the best care for patients and their families. A breakdown of what your donation will go towards can be found on the Wishes page. 

Can I purchase a Leaping Livers t-shirt?

Yes, you can. There are registration options both with or without a shirt. If you already have a Leaping Livers shirt from a previous year, please feel free to register without purchasing one.
