Barbara’s BIGGER Leap 2016 – Fundraiser

Barbara Sturmfels is raising funds for La Leche League New Zealand by skydiving over Taupo in late February – for her 60th Birthday.

Barbara is a Leader of some 19 years standing and she would like to raise at least a dollar for each time she’s helped a mother one-to-one by phone or on a home visit – that’s an impressive number, totalling 2,700 so far!
