Dip for Childhood Dementia
We are Doing it For Childhood Dementia.
To launch Little Heroes Foundation’s our year-long effort to raise awareness and funds for Childhood Dementia, LHF CEO Chris McDermott braved the cold waters of Henley Beach last July 18, 2023 during the coldest morning of the year (2.9 degrees) and went for a #DipforChildhoodDementia.
In Australia, over 2,000 children are living with childhood dementia, this disease causes a child to progressively lose skills such as the ability to write, read, talk, walk, and play. This can happen over months, years, or decades as their brain slowly deteriorates which eventually leads to the inability to keep the body functioning properly. Childhood dementia sadly causes around 90 deaths per year .
Our mission is to raise the much needed awareness and the vital funding required for research into this terrible disease. With the support from people like you, we are hoping to make a difference in the lives of children suffering from this devastating illness.
