In July,  Dave and Nic will run a half marathon to support UsherKids Australia.  Dave, an USH Dad and Nic, an USH Aunt are no strangers to running, having completed a marathon or two between them over the years.

 Are you our next Usher Champion?

For families, receiving a diangosis of Usher syndrome for their young child can be crushing.  Usher syndrome is a rare genetic condition that causes deafness, deteriorating vision impairment and vestibular dysfunction.  Families describe this time as isolating, frightening and overwhelming.  By providing education, information and support to families during these crucial early years, UsherKids Australia is reducing this lonliness and dispear for families.  But to continue this support, we rely on the generosity of our community.

Be elevated to Usher Chamption status by becoming a #5DollarFriend today!

A #5dollarfriend understands that support groups like ours contribute good things to society and want to show some recognition for these good things.

A #5dollarfriend signs up to make a fully tax deductible regular donation of just $5 a month to UsherKids Australia through our GiveNow platform.  Of course, you’re welcome to donate more!

A #5dollarfriend gives themselves a pat on the back for doing good things by allowing others to do good things too.

Dave and Nic will run over 20km for the cause, so really, it’s much easier than running, right?
