About

A 24-hour challenge, raising funds for 24-hour hospice care.

This May, help us raise $1 million to provide 24-hour essential care in Victoria’s only children’s hospice. The ongoing challenges we have all experienced with COVID-19, is how families supported by Very Special Kids live every day, but with no end in sight.

You can support families who are caring for a terminally sick child, so they can recharge, receive therapeutic support, support their other children and ensure they don’t face their journey alone. The hospice offers planned and emergency respite, and also gives families a place where their child can receive end-of-life care in peaceful surroundings.

Get involved today!
