The Children’s Hospital Foundation works wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research, investing in vital new equipment, and providing some amazing entertainment, family support and care programs for sick kids. Our incredible volunteers are there to support little patients while they are in hospital, helping them to laugh and smile, get better and go home with their families.
Everything we do is made possible by the generosity of our partners and supporters. With your help, we will continue to fund research to achieve faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries.
There’s a lot you can do to support a child with an injury, serious illness or life threatening disease. You can donate money to help save precious young lives. Donate your time to make a difference at our children’s hospital. Or raise funds for vital research and equipment, spread smiles and support families through difficult times.
You can make a difference and with your support, the wonders will never cease and the care will never stop.
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!
