Big Walk for PMH: 12-year-old Singleton boy to raise money for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation

SINGLETON 12-year-old Zane Corbett may be waging his own cancer battle but that isn’t stopping him from raising money to support Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Zane and his mum Yolanda Haunold will both be stepping out at this year’s Big Walk for PMH on Sunday, November 12 at Burswood Park.

Zane, who has been treated at Princess Margaret Hospital for Hodgkin’s lymphoma for two years, is keen to raise as much money as possible to go to the Children’s Cancer Ward.

“Zane is absolutely committed to paying things forward and raising money for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, as without the amazing medical professionals at the hospital, he wouldn’t be with us today,” Ms Haunold said.

“Despite his treatment and enduring many side effects from the chemo he has undergone, he is a really positive young man who is committed to helping others and doing all he can to help the kids in Ward 3B.”

This year, family and friends can choose to walk either 6km or 15km and enjoy a whole host of fun activities along the route, including walking through a sea of bubbles at the start line, taking a selfie with a superhero and practising dance moves at the Jungle Body dance party.

Foundation chief executive Denys Pearce said the Big Walk for PMH was a fun fundraising event, with more than $1 million raised for over the past 21 years.
