Mark your calendars and register your interest in joining in on one or two events for an unforgettable weekend supporting our cause. Click here for more information.

Did you know, Childhood Dementia affects an estimated 700,000 kids. Every year, around 50,000 babies are born with a condition that causes Childhood Dementia.

This genetic disorder causes a child to progressively lose skills such as the ability to write, read, talk, walk, and play.

50% of them will not see their 10th birthday.

75% won’t make it past 18.

Currently there is no treatment and no cure.

In Australia there are 91 deaths from Childhood Dementia per year. Cancer takes 92.

Help us change that narrative.

With awareness and more research, we can and will improve survival and quality of life for children with dementia.

World Class research is happening here at our Flinders University, Little Heroes Foundation aims to contribute to help fund the research required for possible treatments and eventual cures for Childhood Dementia.

Any breakthroughs will be shared throughout the world. This is a Worldwide problem. Our kids need our help!
