Kylee Davie and her husband Marcus live in Tasmania, and have 3 children Jordan, Jakob and Veronika. In 2008 when Kylee was 36 weeks pregnant with Veronika, her OBGYN noticed her yet to be born baby had a severe brain abnormality. Kylee shares parts of their families journey with Veronika who lives with complex multiple disabilities, how they started running and their drive to get busy living.

Kylee’s direction in life changed following the arrival of Veronika, as she was immersed into the world of disability. Kylee passionately advocates for Veronika, and others in turn with the strong belief that Veronika’s life will not be defined by her diagnosis, but focuses on Veronika’s strengths and passions.Kylee and Veronika are regulars at parkrun, and have participated in many fun runs about Hobart including running for chocolate in the half marathon at Cadbury in 2020.

Veronika was invited to become an ambassador for Heart and Soles Virtual running in 2019 and enjoys getting out and participating in virtual runs. Kylee is the engine as she pushes Veronika in the running chair, while Veronika signs she wants to go faster!
