A KARDINYA woman says her family will participate in a fundraiser to support a service that helped them when they were at their most vulnerable.

Rebecca and Giulian Lloyd-Booth lost their son Lincoln to a heart condition in April.

He was less than a month old.

Rebecca said the family received incredible support from Red Nose, and will take part in the seventh annual Sunshine Beach Run at City Beach in February to return the favour.

“Red Nose has been an amazing support to us and the Sunshine Beach Run is an event we are honoured to get behind,” she said.

More than $920,000 has been raised for over the last six years, with that money helping Red Nose continue its research into miscarriage, stillbirth and SIDS/SUDC and run counselling services.

“Nothing prepares you for this kind of loss,” Rebecca said.

“The love of family and friends and the services provided by organisations like Red Nose are an enormous help.”

Entries for the 2018 event are now open, with participants able to walk or run 1km, 3km or 5km.
