The Melbourne Cup: a teen’s perspective

The Melbourne Cup: a teen’s perspective

Melbourne Cup day is a special day for teenager Sarah Kerr. Why? She gets to raise money for people like her who are living with cystic fibrosis.

At 11, cystic fibrosis had badly damaged Sarah’s lungs. She had constant infections and regularly spent time in hospital. She could barely walk from her bed to the couch each day.

Now at 14, after a double lung transplant, Sarah is like any other teenager who loves dancing, playing floorball and hanging out with her dog Pablo.

Sarah’s tips for how to enjoy Melbourne Cup day

  • Have fun.
  • Enjoy the food.
  • Don’t miss the race!
  • Help support a good cause.
