SEAN Hill’s life was saved by Cord Blood and he’s now the face of a campaign to raise $30,000 for Cord Blood Research by encouragin­g communitie­s to participat­e in ‘Sean’s Two for Ten.’

The walk involves a simple two kilometre walk in groups of two’s and donating $10.

This is at any time, any place and anyhow. You are also welcome to join the Young Generation Inner Wheel group walk on Sunday 14th March at 9.00am from Sir Roden Cutler Park or anytime anywhere.

All you have to do is to Register online, on Facebook, Sean’s Two for Ten, or on the Inner Wheel Australia Website, by Google searching Inner Wheel Australia National Project to fill in a registrati­on form to donate $10.

Inner Wheel members throughout Australia have raised $3,098,462 and it’s hoped to raise another $30,000 this campaign.

Research is based on the stem cells from cord blood collected at birth. These stem cells are used to treat a range of blood disorders and immune system conditions such as leukaemia, anaemia and autoimmune diseases.

Stem cells are largely used in the treatment of children however they’ve started being used in adults following chemothera­py.

Current research activity includes stroke and heart disease, diabetes and cerebral palsy.
