About Grace

The Grace Centre for Newborn Intensive Care is a specialist unit, where more than 600 premature newborns, neonates and critically ill infants with complex medical conditions, such as serious cardiac and surgical disorders are treated.

This specialised unit provides urgent life-saving care for infants across NSW, ACT and the Pacific Rim -, some flown into the nursery within hours of birth. The Grace Centre is also the only accredited NIDCAP (Newborn Individualised Developmental Care and Assessment Program) training centre in Australia, leading the way in neonatal developmental care.  

 All of the generous funds raised from Race for Grace this year will go towards the area of greatest need -  whether that’s ground-breaking research, cutting-edge technology or positive patient experiences. 

“By participating in the Race for Grace people are becoming part of our team. They are contributing in a meaningful way to the care of sick babies who with their help will recover and go on to live full lives. They are making it possible for us to extend our services beyond the expected to the extraordinary. They are enabling us to be our best , which in turn means the very best of care for those babies and families who are depending on us.” -  Professor Nadia Badawi AM

Celebrating 10 Years

This November, celebrate the 10th anniversary of Race for Grace and help raise vital funds for the Grace Centre for Newborn Intensive Care at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

On average, critically ill babies stay at the Grace Centre for 11 days. That's why, we're calling on our Movement of Many to challenge yourselves and see how many kilometers you can ride in 11 hours! Together, we can help continue to provide extraordinary care to critically ill babies, now and into the future.
