In 2017, Associate Professor Andrew Kornberg took-off on a fundraising adventure called Fly for the Kids. A much-loved RCH neurologist, Andrew covered 27,000kms as he solo circumnavigated Australia in honour of the many RCH patients and families he’s cared for.
Andrew couldn’t have completed his once in a lifetime trip without the support of sponsors like Spotless, one of Australia’s leading providers of integrated facilities services. Spotless generously donated over $10,000 to help Fly for the Kids get off the ground.
“Spotless is such an integral part of the RCH, so showing our support for the patients and families is something that we’re really passionate about as a business. Supporting Fly for the Kids hits close to home for many of our staff who have young families and know the importance of programs that can assist the lives of those living with complex movement disorders.
“We look forward to seeing what Andrew and the RCH team accomplish with the program,” said Fiona McKerrow, Spotless Contract Manager.
Thanks to supporters like Spotless, the first five years of a Complex Movement Disorders Program have been funded. The Program will provide world leading care for children and young people affected by life limiting movement disorders.
“We will run our research and clinical care side by side, and having this expertise in one place will have an incredible benefit to these children and families. I am sure that we will make great strides in the treatment of these disorders,” said Andrew.
