Snailing it for Sofia

We're participating for...Sofia!

The Marketing and Communication team at The University of Queensland are proud to be doing "42kyourway" in support of an amazing little girl called Sofia. Sofia was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma earlier this year - bone cancer in both legs. She has been in and out of chemo treatment for the last 7 months at the Children’s Hospital and has had a partial leg amputation and rotationplasty performed on one leg to remove the larger tumour and has another surgery coming up to remove a smaller cancer in the other leg.

Sofi loves dancing, fashion and shows kindness, hope and resilience no matter what life throws at her. She has hosted juicedTV and is also a new ambassador for the children’s hospital foundation.  

We are doing this run to honour Sofia, share her story and raise awareness of the horrible and awful illnesses that no child should ever have to deal with.  “Snailing it for Sofia” is about running to support kids and their families battling the worst kinds of illness and we hope for them to have strength and courage to keep fighting.

Dear Trish, Tanya & Lauren, Thank you very much for supporting the Children’s Hospital Fundation. The work they do is so amazing and I’ve seen it first hand ever since I started my battle against Osteosarcoma. They bring so much happiness and hope in so many ways to all kinds that for different reasons have to spend time in hospital. I hope you guys are training hard as 42km is a looong distance 😬. I’ll be cheering you up all the way. God bless you! Sofia 🌻🌼🌸🌺🌹
