Tom's London Marathon run for Finnan's Gift

Participating in a challenge is a fun and effective way to fundraise. A huge thanks to Tom who has raised over $2,600 for Finnan's Gift by running in the London Marathon.

Tom Warner's brother Oliver Camplin-Warner and his wife Alisa tragically lost their baby son Finnan in 2011.

In Alisa and Oliver's words:

"On the 10th March 2011, Finnan Maximus Camplin-Warner was prematurely brought into the world because “something was wrong” with his heart – Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). Ten days later, our beautiful baby boy became an angel in heaven after enduring six open heart surgeries. Finnan’s doctors said he lived up to his gladiatorial name and was truly heroic.

To honour our courageous son and to ensure other little babies and their families don’t endure the pain we have, the Finnan’s Gift Appeal has been set up."

Finnan's Gift has reached its original goal of buying an echocardiology scanner, and now provides a grant each year to The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne where Finnan was given such expert care during his short life.

Thanks to everyone who supported Tom in raising these much needed funds.
