Lace up to make a difference

Lachie's Laces

Lachie’s Laces are vibrant yellow shoelaces that we’ve created in memory of Lachie Sutherland, our beautiful, bright boy who died from cancer in 2020, aged 12.

Celebrate Lachie’s Laces on September 24th/25th.

Lachie’s Laces are only $5 and this year all proceeds go to the Child Cancer Foundation.

You can wear Lachie’s Laces anytime you like – heck we’d encourage you to wear them every day! But our official days are September 24th and 25th. Lachie’s birthday is September 25th – this year he would have been 16. So if your school or workplace are jumping on board, then Friday 22ndor Monday 25th are the days to go yellow and Saturday 23rd is the perfect day for all you sportsmen and sportswomen.

Remember to hashtag #lachieslaces!

We’ll be searching out posts with this hashtag and adding them to our website, so make sure you have your hashtag game on point and keeping checking our feed.


Text to donate $3

We’re excited to announce that this year we have launched text donations! Simply text Lachie to 3457 to donate $3.

Alternatively, you can also donate through our online donation form here.


Why Lachie's Laces?

Throughout his short life, Lachie managed to leave a mark. A wise head on a young body, he lived with an awareness of life’s fragility and the need to seize opportunities while showing kindness and generosity of spirit.

Lachie’s Laces is a way of capturing his beautiful spirit and the values he lived by. It’s a way to honour his memory every year and support the Child Cancer Foundation and the amazing work they do.


Our Supporters
