raised so far to help sick kids

You did it Queensland!

Another record-breaking result for Telethon

Thank you so much!

$12,663,951 million reasons to smile

The amazing, generous spirit of Queenslanders shone brightly once again at the Channel Nine Telethon in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation. Community and business partners, schools, families, young and old all contributed to raising an incredible $12,663,951for sick kids and their families.

The money raised will go a long way to help the Children’s Hospital Foundation work wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research and providing an incredible array of patient and family support programs.

Now in its fifth year, the Channel Nine Telethon has raised over $58,000,000, an incredible achievement and proof that Queenslanders are some of the most giving people in the country. Thank you, we couldn’t do it without you!

At the Channel Nine Telethon live broadcast, the sold-out studio audience partied the evening away with favourite celebrities such as Sylvia Jeffreys, Karl Stefanovic, The Block’s Shelly Craft and David Campbell. Nova 106.9’s breakfast crew, Ash, Kip and Lutsy alongside sporting legends Sam Thaiday and Wally Lewis were amongst a host of personalities taking your generous donations over the phone.

Pop sensation Samantha Jade, Luke Kennedy from The Voice, The Potbelleez, Busby Marou and Glenn Shorrock all took to the stage to entertain the audience and bring everyone to their feet to dance the night away.

Next door to the broadcast, 1000 special guests enjoyed a night of nights at the circus themed, “It’s Showtime” Coffee Club Ball. Once again, this now legendary event raised an incredible amount of money in support of Queensland’s sick kids and their families.

TODAY Show’s Karl Stefanovic and Sylvia Jeffreys and The Block’s Shelley Craft will return home to Queensland to co-host the 2018 Nine Telethon, alongside Today Extra’s David Campbell, on Saturday, November 17, at 7.00pm.

 “It is so exciting for me to be able to plant my feet back in Queensland to support such a deserving cause again. Last year we raised a mammoth $12,230,565 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation and I can’t wait to continue on this incredible effort to help sick kids in Queensland,” Sylvia Jeffreys said.

Co-host Karl Stefanovic is asking his fellow Queenslanders across the state to dig deep for such an important cause.

 “I am looking forward to coming home. The 2018 Nine Telethon is going to be an amazing night full of performances, beautiful stories, challenges and phone panel fun. I urge all Queenslanders to get behind the Telethon, do it for the kids,” he said.

 Shelley Craft said: “This year’s Telethon will go above and beyond. I am thrilled to be involved in one big party to raise funds for children in need. Some of the music acts announced, such as Samantha Jade, are going to be amazing, so make sure you tune in and dig deep for the kids, Queensland.”

 Now in its fifth year, the Nine Telethon has raised over $46 million for the Children’s Hospital Foundation thanks to the generosity of our partners and supporters. Funds raised from the 2018 Nine Telethon will continue to go towards research, services and equipment for the sick children of Queensland.
