At SEMZ we have forged relationships with our chosen community partners to give back to our community in a meaningful way.

A group of the SEMZ team have come together, forming a squad to participate in this years’ Melbourne Marathon, raising funds for Very Special Kids.

Very Special Kids is a children’s charity that helps approximately 850 families across Victoria who have a child with a life-threatening condition.  VSK provides ongoing support from diagnosis all the way through to recovery or bereavement.

The free-of-charge family support services include a children’s hospice counselling, advocacy, sibling support, bereavement support, networking and peer activities, trained family volunteers and specialist care at the Very Special Kids Hospice. Each family is supported in unique and varying ways according to their personal needs.

SEMZ is very proud to have Very Special Kids as one of our Community Partners and to further support the organisation we are raising funds for a Very Special Project,  the complete rebuild of Victoria’s only children’s hospice.

Please take a moment to learn about this Very Special Project, and if you would like to join us in raising funds, please provide your support on our donation page

Every donation, large or small will absolutely make a difference.

In the unfortunate event the Marathon is cancelled due to covid restrictions we will individually complete our selected distances and ensure your generous donation makes a difference.

Thank you from the team at SEMZ, on behalf of Very Special Kids.
