Archie lost his life on 23 August 2022, his first birthday.
Infection triggered sepsis leading to organ failure and sadly his death.
If the words “Could it be Sepsis?” were used earlier it could have saved his life.

Walk for Archie aims to raise awareness about sepsis so that no other family has to go through this devastating experience.
Walk for Archie is on Saturday 8 am 16th September 2023, coinciding in the same week with World Sepsis Day, and involves a 6.5 km round trip starting at Speer’s Point Amateur Sailing Club.

Your support will go to Sepsis Australia who are working to improve sepsis care in Australia by developing lifesaving clinical guidance to detect, diagnose and treat the condition;
raise community awareness of sepsis symptoms and the importance of seeking immediate medical attention; and
establish a much-needed National Centre for Sepsis, which will play a key coordinating role in fighting the condition across the country.
Together we can improve early recognition, prevention and treatment of sepsis and save thousands of lives each year.
