'Rare Star' Day

Date and Time: 27 February 2017 08:15 AM

Rare Star Day is an exclusive, by invitation only event, when the Steve Waugh Foundation hosts a selection of its grant recipients and their families, of that year from all around Australia, to join us to celebrate Rare Disease Day, which is on the last day of February each year.

Part of our Grants Program – it is also a Respite Retreat over a 3 day period. Often the only break a family will have!

Supported by Patron Basil Sellers AM, Canon Australia, Havas and Virgin Airlines, Rare Star Day is an opportunity that allows our grant recipients and their families a chance to connect, make new friends and share stories in an experience that can't be valued in dollars. Most importantly, it's a day where they can momentarily forget their hardships and just enjoy themselves - a day for them to shine.

Each year grant recipient families (including parents, carers, grant recipients & siblings) join Foundation staff, supporters and volunteers at a special venue for a rare fun day out and unique experiences for the whole family.
