In their latest fundraising initiative, Albie’s mum Emma is walking 100 kilometers from Geelong to the RCH on Friday 19 March with the goal of reaching $10,000 in donations.
Emma founded Albie’s Allies to raise funds and awareness for the Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction Service (CPRS) at the RCH, which treats children that are born with lifelong bowel conditions. Usually, Albie’s Allies would hold large community fundraising events to show support for the RCH, Barwon Health and Kids Plus Foundation, however with the impact of COVID-19, Emma had to get creative with her campaign.
Albie’s Allies is also a proud sponsor of a sculpture as part of Me and UooUoo: The RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail. Their chosen sculpture is UooUoo, the original design created by artist Alexander Knox for the art trail, and is located in the lobby of Larwill Studio at the RCH.
This sculpture holds particular significance to the Moore family, as Albie has an affinity to the colourful ‘Creature’ sculpture in the main foyer of the hospital which was also designed by Alexander Knox, having spent many years playing underneath it between appointments.
