Every November, Queenslanders get behind 9Telethon to raise $13 million for the Children’s Hospital Foundation (CHF) which helps sick kids battling illness or injury.
In the lead up to 9Telethon this year, you can run, walk or swim the equivalent of a marathon (42km) to help the Foundation reach their target.
Aptly named, the ‘42k Your Way Telethon Marathon’, it provides an opportunity for all Queenslanders to participate and help raise much needed funds for sick kids, with no minimum fundraising amount required.
The CHF invests in vital equipment, supports families and funds life-saving medical research and programs, such as the Statewide Connected Care program, which facilitates the care of more than 1300 children with chronic and complex health conditions from Brisbane to Cape York.
Sunsuper, for the fifth consecutive year, is a presenting partner of 9Telethon, and through its partnership this year will help fund the Statewide Connected Care program for 12 months; helping many more families and sick kids get the care they need at home, no matter where they live.
All Queenslanders can get involved in 9Telethon this year, by simply tuning in to watch the coverage on Saturday, 16 November or signing up as an individual or team to run 42K your way and help raise more funds for sick kids. To find out more visit 9telethon.com.au/whats-on/42k-your-way
