Testimonial

Liam took part in an Iron Man comp, raising $11,000 along the way!

Liam said on choosing to fundraise for Variety "I've always thought because I am able-bodied, I could support those who might not be, in particular, kids. It's hard to be a parent, and when you're faced with challenges that Variety kids and families are experiencing, this would be even harder."

Liam has a powerful message for Variety kids: "I want you to know that you are not alone, that there are people out there that are behind you. It might be tough, but it doesn't mean it's a no. It doesn't mean that you can't."

Other ways you can help out

Give Today

Our work allows kids to gain mobility, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase their self-esteem. We make sure the kids who miss out, can always join in. Give today and make a difference.
