2017 Channel Nine Telethon Launches

This week, Channel Nine Queensland were proud to launch the fourth annual Channel Nine Telethon in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation with the aim of raising an incredible $11 million to help sick kids and their families.

Together, we’ve raised over $30 million over the past four years, which showed extraordinary care for sick kids. And we are excited to build on that support even more in 2017, to reach our goal of $11 million and make an even bigger difference to the lives of children throughout our state.

To kick off fundraising, the Minister for Health and Ambulance Services, Hon Cameron Dick announced the Queensland Government’s $1 million support on behalf of all Queenslanders.

Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Rosie Simpson said the support and generosity of the community will help save lives.

“Your donations will fund life-saving medical research, new medical equipment, and provide entertainment and support services for children and their families.

“Every donation, no matter how big or small, makes a huge difference,” she said.

By making a donation, Queenslanders will help the Children’s Hospital Foundation support, care and entertain our sickest kids and their families while they’re in hospital and they can be part of something big – funding world-class research to find better treatments and ultimately cures for our most devastating childhood diseases.

We would also like to thank our presenting partners – the Queensland Government, Woolworths, BOQ, Golden Casket, The Coffee Club, The Courier Mail and The Sunday Mail, Triple M and Sunsuper – and their staff and customers for their wonderful support.

The Channel Nine Telethon will occur on Saturday 19 November. If you are interested in donating to help sick kids smile and laugh, get better and go home sooner, call 1800 909 900, or donate online now.

Today, we're celebrating an EXTRA happy Friday, as we welcomed the riders of 1200kms for kids to our children's hospital!

We were also excited to accept a cheque for $50,000 to go towards the Queensland Children's Tumour Bank.

The Tumour Bank, funded by the Children's Hospital Foundation, is an important resource to help increase our understanding of childhood cancer, and improve outcomes for patients.

Our incredible riders began their journey in Sydney seven days ago, and helped raise funds for the Children's Hospital Foundation and Humpty Dumpty Foundation.

Riders were also joined by the Director of the Tumour Bank, Dr Andy Moore as well as Max, who was just 10 years old when he was diagnosed with brain cancer.

Sophie is just 15 years old, and for the third year in a row, she is raising vital funds for the Channel Nine Telethon to help us reach our target of $11 million!

Sophie suffers from a heart condition called supra ventricular tachycardia, and has endured three operations on her precious heart. By collecting funds in her community, she has contributed more than $3,700 to help sick kids laugh and smile, get better and go home sooner.

Last weekend, she hosted a very special Mad Hatter's Tea Party, together with our partners Popolo Italian Kitchen and Bar.

Sophie brought delicious cakes, pastries, sandwiches and games to South Bank, as well as giant jenga and crochet games to help raise money for other sick kids just like her. A big thank you to The Prop House for helping Sophie bring fun and games to her Mad Hatter's Tea Party!

Everything the Children's Hospital Foundation does is made possible by the support of people like Sophie. If you would like to donate to Sophie's fundraising, visit https://childrenshospitalfoundation.everydayhero.com/au/sophie
