Marvelous midwives master Rottnest swim for prems
A group of King Eddies midwives are the toast of the town after they conquered the 2019 Rottnest Channel Swim.
As equally as impressive as completing the gruelling 20km open water swim, was the incredible fundraising result achieved by the group – in total raising more than $10,400 for WIRF’s critical work into preterm birth prevention.
In addition to the group’s online funding efforts which would net more than $6250, the midwives would also source a variety of prizes and hampers for a raffle run through WIRF’s Café, which itself, would raise more than $4150.
