smoothfm is proudly supporting the 2019 Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

The Good Friday Appeal is the Royal Children’s Hospital’s largest fundraiser, bringing together people from all parts of the community to raise much needed funds for equipment, research and education to support the hospital’s vital work and ensure it remains world class.

There are many ways to get involved and donate to the Good Friday Appeal.

Run for the Kids is back this year with later start times and is being held on Sunday 7th April. Get a team together and enter the Short Course (5.2km) or the Long Course (12.8km)!

Kids Day Out is happening on Friday 19th April. The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be transformed into a fun kids zone, with over 40 different activities on the day.

The Good Friday Appeal Raffle – you could be behind the wheel of a brand new Mazda CX-9 Azami all wheel drive, touring the countryside in your Majestic Knight SLE Caravan, or flying business class to Tokyo with QANTAS. If you purchase 5 or more tickets in the same transaction, you’ll also automatically be entered into the draw to win the bonus prize of a luxury Scenic 'Jewels of Europe' river cruise.

• You can also create your own event and raise funds at work, school, at home or in your local community.

Funds from the Good Friday Appeal have helped countless children and their families since it began almost 90 years ago, including four-year-old Ollie.

Thanks to the expert staff at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Ollie is able to go exploring at any opportunity he gets, with a team of five specialists managing and continually reviewing his care. Ollie’s family is one of many who hope to inspire others to dig deep and raise money for the Good Friday Appeal, so The Royal Children’s Hospital can continue to be a world leader in paediatric care.
