About The 10th Annual Diamond Event

Funds raised at The 10th Annual Diamond Event will support the Fellowship Program which is crucial to the development and success of children’s medical care.

Fellows provide expert care for patients, whilst also increasing their skills in a specialised field. This helps them improve diagnostic methods for children, increase cure rates, reduce side effects of treatments and improve long-term outcomes. It is not only today’s patients who will benefit from the Fellowship Program but future generations of children around the world.

The Diamond Event 2018 raised over $750,000 for the Fellowship Program at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
