The City2Surf experience was a blast, and amidst the frantic late night emails and paper work, Kellie Lemon our Mountain BuggyTM champion in Sydney, discovered a shining star.
Susan Wallis from Agoo Australia, is a woman of substance. Not only does she play a key role in a thriving children’s clothing company, she is also proud mum to Gracie, who at birth was urgently airlifted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at RPA by the Telstra Child Flight. The team got to know Susan and found an inspirational, fun loving and compassionate woman, who was determined to continually thank the organisation through the City2Surf run, by raising and hitting her target of $5000 through her many supporters.
After learning that Susan had fallen in love with the Mountain Buggy urban jungleTM while test driving it on the day of the run, Kellie decided to act fast through the phil&teds 'Buggies for Good' programme. Our warehouse re-serviced that same buggy back to tip top condition and Kellie organised to meet Susan along with her youngest in tow to present her with the stylish black urban jungleTM! Not only was Susan overwhelmed with emotion, but in Kellie’s words ‘It was one of the most gratifying experiences I have ever been involved with.”
And we have just learnt that Susan will be donating her previous buggy to ‘Buggies for Good’ for a chance for someone else to receive some new wheels re-serviced with love. On a final note from Susan, “I am overwhelmed by your gift which is why I’ve taken so long to contact you. Saying thank you alone is not enough somehow, so how about we love and use the buggy for a long time and tell the world how happy we are to have the pleasure! I was doing that already and I didn’t even own one!”
Susan, we wish you and your family - especially Princess Gracie - all the best and are absolutely delighted to welcome you into the wonderful world of Mountain Buggy!
We strongly believe good things happen to good people and hope you do too, so if you own a phil&teds or Mountain Buggy that is sitting dormant in your household that you would like to donate, contact our team at [email protected]
"As you can see Gracie is happy and comfortable in her new transport. Many thanks".
