About The Lilyroo Fund & Lilyroo Ride
Established in March 2014 by Kristie and Pete Lockyer to celebrate the short but perfect life of their daughter Lily. The Lilyroo Fund raises funds and awareness for the NISC Unit at The Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne.
At 23 weeks and 2 days into Kristie Lockyer’s pregnancy, her waters unexpectedly broke. Up to that point Kristie had enjoyed a normal healthy pregnancy. Four days later on March 26th 2014 at 11:43am, Lily Mary Lockyer was born weighing just 558g. Despite the world class care of the Newborn Intensive and Special Care (NISC) unit at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, Lily was born too young to lead a long and healthy life.
Nicknamed Lilyroo by her eldest cousin, Lily’s legacy will live on through the Lilyroo Fund and ensure that preterm babies and their families receive the same incredible care and compassion that Lily and her family received at the Women’s.
The inaugural Lilyroo Ride is a 1156km 7-day charity bicycle ride from Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide to the Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne. Up to thirty riders will cycle the route from Sunday 5th April 2015 to Saturday 11th April 2015 and raise much needed funds for the Royal Women’s Hospital NISC unit.
