Balmoral Burn Raises $1.5 Million


—Speaker, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation's Balmoral Burn kicked off with a bang this year, raising an astonishing $1.5 million for vital medical equipment to help sick children in hospital. The Balmoral Burn has now raised more than $23.7 million since its inception in 2001. Each year, thousands of people tackle the 450 metre stretch of Mosman's Awaba Street and this year, the event saw an amazing 5000 people in attendance. I would like to make special mention of Camilla, Eloise, Tara and Stuart Pollard, who were this year's top fundraisers, raising an astounding $41 400. The family of four hold the Humpty Dumpty Foundation close to their heart. Their beautiful twins Camilla and Eloise, who are now old enough to run the Balmoral Burn, were born at 28 weeks at less than 1kg. The twins survived thanks to equipment supplied by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation. Now, the family is giving back through fundraising. Congratulations to all those who raced on Sunday, and thank you to all those who donated. Thank you to the fantastic team at the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, whose work is so selfless and gives so much to our community.
