An Amazing $220,000 to help sick kids and their families

Starlight Cheque Presentation

A very proud moment for Trek4kidz presenting a cheque to the Starlight Children’s Foundation for an amazing $220,000 on Monday 28th September at the Starlight Express Room at the John Hunter Hospital.

Trek4kidz media officer Michelle McDonald said: “To see the impact Starlight’s work has on sick children, teenagers and their families, we know how worthwhile the trek is – that’s what keeps us coming back each year”.

We would also like to give a big thank you to all our sponsors and supporters. Without your support we couldn’t do it!

“Starlight CEO Louise Baxter said: “Starlight is absolutely thrilled that in their 19th year Trek4Kids raised $220k which will grant more than 30 life changing Starlight Wishes, and support seriously ill kids and their families in hospitals in NSW. Trek4Kidz is a wonderful community fundraiser and everyone involved is committed to making the annual Trek a successful and amazing event! Trek4Kidz goes from strength to strength each year and their continued support to Starlight is truly inspiring. Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital in Australia and Starlight is there to help them to play, laugh and simply be kids again. On behalf of everyone at Starlight, a huge thank you to Trek4Kidz for their continued support and commitment to helping sick kids and their families when they need it the most.”
