As part of Prime Financial Group’s Platinum sponsorship of The Captain’s Ride in 2017, we’d like to introduce you to an Ambassador of The Steve Waugh Foundation and a Grant recipient – Renee.
“I’m Renee or Princess Shorty to my friends. I agreed to be an Ambassador of the Foundation because I can understand how other families with children that have rare diseases and disabilities feel. I know how much help and support we all need! We just have to remind ourselves, we are rare but equal no matter what.”
The Steve Waugh Foundation has supported Renee in an ongoing capacity since 2007. As you will notice in the video below, Renee requires an oxygen delivery system that meant she was almost entirely home-bound until receiving the Foundation’s support. By providing portable oxygen cylinders every month, Renee can have a life outside her home and enjoy many of the everyday things that we often take for granted.
Renee is an Ambassador for The Steve Waugh Foundation, a role she carries out with wit, unsinkable optimism and great character.
The Captain’s Ride is the premier fundraising event for The Steve Waugh Foundation, and funds raised provide life changing support and champions the stories of children and young adults (0-25 years) with a rare disease that would otherwise have nowhere to turn.
