Story


I'm taking part in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2015 and helping to raise much needed funds for charity.

This September, I’m going to be sweating it out and doing my best to complete a gruelling course over the Harbour Bridge, around Sydney's CBD and finishing at the Opera House steps... 

  

I am honoured to be a part of this amazing race and helping a great cause, and I’d really appreciate your support in this endeavour. 

 

 

Thank you for your support and helping to make a difference!

    KU Marcia Burgess Foundation

    KU has been a leader in quality early childhood education and has had a profound impact on the lives of disadvantaged children and families since 1895.
     
    The KU Marcia Burgess Foundation supports this work with a passion and a strong and clear vision.
     
    Every donation to the Foundation will augment current, and enable new and innovative initiatives that improve the early childhood education participation, inclusion outcomes, and smooth transition to school for disadvantaged, isolated and marginalised children and families.


    In 2020, the Foundation will focus fundraising on initiatives and programs designed to provide greater access for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families and young people, to early childhood education.


    Aligned to both the 125 years anniversary theme and KU’s ongoing commitment to reconciliation, this will remain a focus area for a period of up to 3 years to be able to:


    • Build meaningful relationships in communities
    • Connect and listen to determine the priorities of communities in considering partnership opportunities
    • Implement and evolve initiatives; and
    • Identify outcomes and the impact.

    KU Marcia Burgess Foundation invites the support, collaboration and commitment of individuals, families, corporate Australia, partner organisations and agencies, and philanthropists.
     
    We aspire to achieving even greater outcomes for these children and families, well beyond their early childhood education experiences.
     
    Together, we will change more lives.
     
    In Memory of Marcia Burgess
     
    The Foundation is named to honour one of KU’s trail-blazing luminaries of social inclusion and child wellbeing, the late Marcia Burgess. 
     
    Marcia’s commitment to children with additional needs and her leadership in this area spanned her 50 years of service with KU.
     
    Whilst Marcia took a quiet approach, it was none-the-less driven by her strong will and determination. The result of her dreams, vision and advocacy for vulnerable children, children with additional needs and families have become some of KU’s greatest achievements.
     
    Marcia retired from KU in October 2006 as the manager, Special Education and sadly passed away in June 2007.
     
    She is recognised for her significant contribution to KU, the early childhood sector and the lives of the thousands of children she touched.
     
    What is the KU Difference
     
    125 years ago, KU was born of a visionary idea to establish the nation’s first free Kindergarten, brought to fruition through the efforts of volunteers and the generosity of donors and philanthropists. 
     
    Specifically intended to provide some of Sydney’s poorest children with access to early education, so began the commitment to social justice that is now embedded in KU’s DNA.
     
    Today, this legacy continues and a gift to the KU Marcia Burgess Foundation can make the KU difference in the following ways:

    • Strengthening and creating collaborative partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities - a priority in 2020
    • Offering additional or new supports and services for the KU centres in disadvantaged areas
    • Improving nutrition and health outcomes through the KU Healthy Start Program
    • Increasing engagement and community linkages for children who may otherwise not participate in early childhood education, especially refugee and asylum seeker children and families
    • Peer support and opportunity for school aged siblings of children with disability to meet with other children experiencing a similar family environment
    • Improving the overall participation rates of children accessing early childhood education in disadvantaged areas.
